Huddersfield Town winger Ramadan Sobhi has had his hopes revealed for the transfer window.
The 23-year-old Egypt ace has spent the last 18 months on loan at his boyhood club Al Ahly, the Cairo giants and current national champions.
He’s scored seven goals and provided 14 assists in 36 appearances across all competitions since rejoining Al Ahly, with the club keen to keep hold of him.
But it seems the player – captain of the Egypt Olympic soccer team – wants a fresh challenge and doesn’t want to return to the John Smith’s Stadium either.
His father-in-law is legendary former Al Ahly goalkeeper Ekramy El-Shahat, and he is reported by Kingfut as explaining what the player wants to do next.
“Ramadan Sobhi wants to go to Europe after the end of his loan spell with Al Ahly,” he told Al Nahar TV
“I advise him to go abroad to succeed more and this is what he wants.”
Sobhi hasn’t played for Town since December 2018, when he made the last of his four substitute appearances for the club against Newcastle United.
That wasn’t how his £5m transfer from Stoke City was supposed to work out, but the move to Al Ahly has netted Town some big loan fees and, if he is sold on now, the club insist they will not have lost out financially.

Sobhi is contracted to Town until the end of this coming season, with the club having the option to add a further 12 months, but it seems he will be allowed to go for a suitable offer during the current window, which still has almost five weeks to run.
Italian club Udinese, in addition to Olympiacos in Greece and Besiktas in Turkey, have been linked with potential interest in the player, who struggled to overcome a thigh injury suffered last December.
