Fulham have joined the race to sign Egyptian attacking midfielder Mohamed Nagy Gado. The 25-year old has been lighting up the African Cup of Nations and has scored 3 goals so far in Angola. ‘Gedo’, as he is more commonly known, plays his club football for Al-Ittihad and has also attracted interest from Sunderland, Celtic, and a host of Spanish Clubs.
The player has been praised for his performances in the Nations Cup and, despite being linked with a move to Egyptian giants Al-Ahly, is believed to be in favour of a move to Europe. He is a player who combines high energy with an ability to play with either foot and, despite the nickname Gedo (Arabic slang for Grandad) he possesses good pace.
Prior to the tournament it was believed that Gedo was simply there to make up the numbers, however, a winning goal against Mali in a pre-tournament friendly and two goals in his first two competitive matches, have sent his reputation rocketing.
If Egypt can continue their red-hot form in the Tournament then Gedo, tipped by many as the player of the tournament so far, may well be granted his wish with a move to Europe.
Premiership beware. Grandad could be on his way.
