Junior Ajayi’s Ahly close to signing player who destroyed Plateau United at CAF Champions League

Junior Ajayi’s Al Ahly have reportedly reached an agreement with Tanzania’s Simba SC to sign their star midfielder Luis Miquissone in the current transfer window.

Miquissone has been linked with Al Ahly for several months now, mainly after his performance in the CAF Champions League, where he netted a winner against the African champions Al Ahly in the group stages.

With the Reds looking to strengthen their attacking options this season, it appears that they have identified Miquissone as on of their main targets.

According to Al-Ahly, the club have contacted Simba and have reached an oral agreement for the 26-year-old and will now start negotiations with the player and his representatives to discuss his contract.

Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane knows Miquissone quite well as he previously coached him at Mamelodi Sundowns.

Miquissone had joined Sundowns back in January 2018, but was loaned out almost immediately to the likes of Chippa United, Royal Eagles FC, and UD Songo, before joining Simba permanently in January 2020.

Since joining Simba, Miquissone has hit the ground running in Tanzania, scoring three goals while assisting three others in this year’s CAF Champions League campaign, where they reached the quarterfinals.

It was previously reported that Simba will only let go of Miquissone if their financial demands are met, as they put a price tag on him worth around €1 Million.

He rose to prominence with the assist that destroyed Plateau United during the CAF Champions League qualification.
