Al Nassr was third in the Saudi Pro League standings with 60 points. They were just six points behind champions Al Hilal.
Rudi Garcia, former AS Roma, Marseille and Olympique Lyon manager, has been appointed the Yellows’ head coach.
Al Nassr have signed Columbian goalkeeper David Ospina as a free transfer. They are now looking to improve their team with ex-Barcelona player Miralem Pjanic as one of their transfer targets.
Al Ahly’s Aliou dieng seems to be another potential transfer target for the Riyadh-based team.
A report from Saudi newspaper Al Yaum states that Al Nassr has held talks with Al Ahly about a possible summer transfer for Dieng. However, no formal offers have been made.
Since joining the Reds in 2019, Dieng has been a fan favourite with Al Ahly fans, making more than 100 appearances for them.
Dieng, a 24-year-old midfielder who is physically strong in the Egyptian Premier League’s midfield, has struggled to make it into Al Ahly’s starting line-up since his injury.
Al Ahly’s No.15 has won back-to-back CAF Champions League title, the CAF Super Cup and the Egyptian Premier League. He also won the Egypt Cup and two Club World Cup bronze Medals.
