While the transfer window has slammed shut for most world championships, free agents remain unaffected by this restriction and have the freedom to choose their next destination.
One such player benefiting from this situation is Anthony Modeste, who has been unattached since the expiration of his contract with Borussia Dortmund.
The former Cologne sharpshooter, who netted an impressive 20 goals in 32 Bundesliga matches during the 2021-22 season has passed his medical in Swisserland medical facility ahead of his transfer to African Giants Al-Ahly SC. Al Ahly missed out on a few strikers in this transfer market and Modeste will most probably be a temporary striker until the winter transfer market opens again, unless he proves himself and bags a few goals.

Without a club affiliation since June, Modeste has been training with the 4th division club Fortuna Cologne since the beginning of August to keep himself fit for a new adventure, according to Bild.
The eleven-time African champions Ahly ended last season as the winners of both the Egyptian Premier League and the African Champions League.
