Al Ahly And Brighton Agree On Tau?

Word reaching the Siya crew is that Al Ahly could have received a massive boost in their pursuit of Percy Tau, following the latest development. 

On Tuesday, the Siya crew reported that Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane openly aired his desire to lure his former player to the Egyptian side.

The Siya crew subsequently reported that the Red Eagles had opened official talks with Brighton Hove and Albion.

As this breaking news rapidly unravels, the latest news reaching the desk of the Siya crew is that Al Ahly and Brighton are close to reaching an agreement with regards to a transfer fee for the player.

The finer details of the transfer figure between the two clubs is being kept under wraps at this stage, but according to Siya sources, Al Ahly have prepared a ‘fair’ offer to Brighton for the 27-year-old.

Last season, the club placed a price tag of €6m (±R101.3m) on Tau, but this figure has since decreased, with the crew reporting that Brighton would now consider offers around €4m (±R67.6m), however, it’s unclear if this is the figure that has been discussed.

Given that the two clubs are close to an agreement, much will depend on whether the player will agree on personal terms with Ahly and if he is open to making the switch.

Despite missing the 2020 Olympics to have more time to gel with his teammates, and scoring a fantastic solo goal for the club this past weekend, the fact that coach Graham Potter is looking to sign two strikers suggests that Tau could slip further down the pecking order at the Amex, which is why the player could be on the move.

Under Mosimane, Tau played in the FIFA Club World Cup in 2016, and this could be an opportunity for the two former Brazilians to reunite on the world stage once again.
