Reports have emerged in Turkey that Afsha could become a new teammate with Egypt striker Mostafa Mohamed soon. As Turkish Super Lig giants Galatasaray are interested in signing him.
According to Turkish outlet Sabah, Galatasaray are expected to make an attempt at the end of the season for Afsha. The latter who has a contract with Al Ahly until June 2024.
Afsha caught the attention of Galatasaray scouts during the period that Mostafa Mohamed was followed by the Red and Yellows, reports the Turkish source.
