Bruce Wants to Tie Up Zaki Deal

Bruce Wants to Tie Up Zaki Deal


Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce is ready to start negotiations to make striker Amr Zaki a permanent signing at the Latics following his successful loan spell from Egyptian club Zamalek.

Zaki signed in a blaze of glory during the summer and started the season off on fire but he has suffered from a niggling injury since the back end of October and as a result his goals have dried up a little though he is still the clubs leading goal scorer with 10

Bruce is keen to sort his front line out for next season before the end of the current term and with Hugo Rodallega brought in from Necaxa he is looking to secure Zaki sooner rather than later and run the risk of the Egypt striker moving on.

Bruce says that the fee for the striker is the big discussion point and if they can get that agreed then Zaki can become a permanent fixture at the Latics, Bruce told the media:

'There will be a time when we are going to ask his club Zamalek exactly what the price is. It was £12m four months ago, at the start it might have been £6m.

'The ball is in their court - there will be dialogue.'

zamalek's elctions are next july , the club is now being managed by a temporary board , so i think that they don't have the authority 2 sell him at the moment , i think that's why they also rejected blackburn when they wanted 2 buy shikabala in jan , so i think bruce has 2 wait till july when the new board with have the authority 2 sell zaki .

Zamlik have to sell him if they can get 9-12 because if they don’t and Zaki gets injured in the summer then he will sell for less than 6 and maybe not at all. After his first PL season he will not have an off-season but instead he has a summer full of world cup qualifiers and a continental champion’s cup facing Italy, Brazil and the USA. It’s just not worth the risk.
