The Sfaxien captain becomes Al Ahly’s third signing of the summer window, after Petrojet’s Mohamed El-Shenawy and Ismaily’s Marwan Mohsen.

Ali Maaloul started his career in Sfaxien’s youth setup, before being promoted to the first team at the end of the 2008-2009 season.

The Tunisian international scored 36 goals and provided 43 assists in his eight seasons with his boyhood club.

The 26-year-old defender finished as the 2015/2016 Tunisian Ligue 1 top scorer with 16 goals, the highest-ever amount of goals scored by a defender in one season in the league’s history.

The left-back is expected to be registered by Al Ahly in the the club’s squad for the remainder of their 2016 CAF Champions League campaign.
