Karim El Ahmadi May Be Headed To Hamburg

Feyenoord might be looking to offload Karim El Ahmadi this summer due to financial problems at the Dutch club.
Mountkhab.net reports that Karim El Ahmadi could be leaving the Dutch Eredevisie this summer for the German Bundesliga, with Hamburger SV being the most likely destination.

According to the source, the reason for eventual transfer is the global economic downturn and its negative affect the club combined with poor results this season. Feyenoord are currently in 11th place and only seven points from the drop zone.

A move to Hamburg, who are currently in fifth place of the Bundesliga and still very much in contention for a Champions League place, would be appealing to the Moroccan international.

The 24 year old signed for Feyenoord on April 16, 2008 from his hometown club of Twente Enschede and has scored two goals in 18 matchs for De Stadionclub.

El Ahmadi participated in The Atlas Lions' last friendly encounter when Roger Lemerre called him up for the home friendly against the Czech Republic on February 11.

The striker, who also can double as an offensive midfielder, switched allegiances from the Netherlands to Morocco at the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championships in Holland, having previously represented various Oranje youth teams.
