Wigan Athletic - Amr Zaki Transfer Agreed

Egyptian soccer superstar Amr Zaki has agreed personal terms with Wigan Athletic and with the club agreeing to pay Zaki`s current side, El Zamalek, over 6 million it is expected that the transfer will be tied up and confirmed this week.

Latics boss Steve Bruce missed the end of season Players awards night to go and finalise the transfer and caught Zaki scoring two goals in El Zamaleks game against Aluminium Naq Hammadi

Zaki has scored 22 goals in 44 games for El Zamalek and a very impressive 21 goals in 40 games for Egypt in just three years and at 25 there is a lot more to come from the Egyptian yet.

Two strikers in this week, anyone would think that we struggled to score goals last season.

I'm delighted with that signing (a fellow countryman, that's why). Seriously, he's a good striker. He's strong, fast and never gives up!

contract not signed yet but Mr Benson is expected to fly out and iron out final details for Zaki. Signing of Gierrero not as certian but Eric Blakc was flown over to watch him play. His signing would depend on what our exisiting strikers decide to do

by the way "Mamdouh Abbas" said that he won't agree unless he find a substitute for "Amr" .. but i guess that he'll find some substitute .. and i guess that Amr Zaki is comin for loan i guess by the way iam from Egypt and i am the biggest fan of Zamalek and you made the right choice he's the best striker in Egypt till now .. maybe Africa ... cya
