Mahlambi has struggled for playing time since moving to the
Egyptian giants last year from Bidvest Wits, and now appears to be
surplus to requirements in Cairo.
With Billiat having departed for fierce rivals Kaizer Chiefs and Tau
making a switch to Brighton in the English Premier League, it seems the
20-year-old is the Brazilians primary target.
According to reports in Egypt, the forward has not been registered
for the 2018/19 campaign and the Club of the Century already have their
full quota of foreigners as well.
As such, the Bafana Bafana international appears set for a move to
the Premiership champions with coach Pitso Mosimane making no secret of
his desire to land the rising star.
With that said, Al Ahly are said to want to loan the player whereas Downs are seeking a permanent transfer to Pretoria.
