thumbnail Hello,

The Ghanaian striker, who signed for the Egyptian giants last month, will be travelling to the North African country on Thursday

Newly-recruited Al Ahly striker John Antwi will travel to Egypt on Thursday to familiarise himself with the Red Devils ahead of the upcoming season, Goal understands.

The 22-year-old Ghanaian is expected to hang around and watch Ahly’s remaining five games in the league ahead their pre-season set for August.

The Cairo-based outfit signed Antwi from Saudi Arabian club Al Shabab on a four-year deal last month.

Antwi gained cult status while playing for another Egyptian team Ismaily between 2013 and 2015, netting 28 goals in 47 appearances and winning the top scorer award of the Egyptian elite division in the 2013-2014 season.

He made a $2.2 million move to Al Shabab last February and scored four goals in 12 games before Ahly bought the remainder of his contract.

The former Sekondi Eleven Wise and Dreams FC forward is expected to form a partnership upfront with Ahly’s stars Ahmed Moteab and Mohammed Nagy Gedo to help bring the eight-time Caf Champions League winners back to the top.

Ahly are currently lying second on the Egyptian League table with 74 points, six behind leaders Zamalek.
