Tornio have signed Mostafa Fathi from Zamalek on Loan Deal
Zamalek chairman Mortada Mansour confirmed Mostafa Fathi’s departure from Zamalek to join Italian side Torino today on an Egyptian radio show.
The Italian club have previously offered 500,000 euros to sign the 22-year-old player in a six-month loan deal starting January, with an option to make the deal permanent for 2.5 million euros in the summer.
Fathi, renowned for his outstanding dribbling skills and ability to dodge opponents in one-on-one situations, has established himself as one of Zamalek’s key players since joining the club as a teenager in 2013.
This is not the first time a Serie A club have shown interest in Fathi as Bologna made a similar bid to Zamalek in June but was rejected.
Torino, who finished 12th in the Italian league last season, lie eighth in this season’s table this season with 29 points, 16 behind leaders Juventus, who played one match less.
