Portsmouth Target UAE Stars Ahmed Khalil & Hamdan Al Kamali - Report

Sulaiman Al Fahim would like to bring the 'Arab Eto'o' and a highly-rated defender to Fratton Park once his takeover is complete...
Portsmouth will be looking to bring some talent from their prospective owner's homeland, once Dr. Sulaiman Al Fahim's expected purchase of the club is concluded, with the billionaire's representatives hopeful that it will be confirmed by mid-July.

Al Fahim is, according to English tabloid The Daily Mail, lining up moves for Al Wahda defender Hamdan Al Kamali  and Al Ahli forward Ahmed Khalil, with the entrepreneur having informed sources in the Middle-East of his desire to bring the two young players to England.

Al Kamali is a 20-year-old centre-back with pace, who captained the UAE Under-20s to victory in the Asian Youth Championships in Saudi Arabia last autumn.

Khalil is an 18-year-old striker who has been compared to Barcelona and Cameroon forward Samuel Eto'o, with whom he shares some characteristics. Khalil who was the top scorer and Player of the Tournament at the Youth Championship, has since been capped at the senior level.

When his proposed purchase of the club was initially announced some weeks ago, Al Fahim made it clear that it was his intention to bring at least one player to Fratton Park from his homeland, as well as developing the club's youth policy and bringing some established English stars to the club.
