Al Ahly submit offer for Santos winger Lucas Braga


Cairo giants Al Ahly have reportedly launched a bid to sign Santos winger Lucas Braga ahead of the new season.

Al Ahly have had a disappointing season after missing out on the CAF Champions League title after suffering a loss to Wydad Casablanca in May.

The Red Devils are also trailing rivals Zamalek by ten points in the Egyptian Premier League table, with the latter on course to win a second straight title.

Club president Mahmoud El-Khatib has already said the remaining league fixtures will be treated as a pre-season, with senior players taking a break ahead of the new season.

El-Khatib also promised fans that big signings would be made to strengthen the squad and it looks like Al Ahly have identified their first summer transfer target.

Al Ahly reportedly submitted a proposal of around $4 million while offering the player a four-year deal.

However, club president Andrés Rueda is keen to keep Braga and will only listen to offers above $10m.

The 25-year-old has scored a total of 14 goals and provided 10 assists in 144 appearances for Santos in all competitions.
