Mohamed Youcef Belaïli is a free agent. This comes after the player and his former Saudi Arabian Club reached an agreement to go separate ways on Tuesday.
The 28-year-old Algerian attacking midfielder is heavily linked with a return to Europe and Africa. The player’s entourage says the former SCO Angers midfielder is a subject of transfer interest from multiple European Clubs.
The name of the former Esperance of Tunis creative midfielder has popped up in the transfer rumour mill in Belgium, Egypt, Tunisia, France and Spain this summer.
Al Ahly SC of Cairo have been mentioned on a couple of occasions as one of the interested Clubs.
The midfielder spent a single campaign in Saudi Arabia where he scored five goals and assisted three others from 18 appearances.
Voted the best African footballer based in Africa in 2018, starred at the 2019 AFCON tournament in Egypt and surprised many when he opted to move to Saudi Arabia as there were a handful of European clubs keen on acquiring his services.
Belaili’s valuation stands at just under €3 Million which is payable for any serious Club in the market for an attacking midfielder. This value is likely to reduce with the player being a free agent.
Youcef began his career at his home city of Oran with RCG in 2007. He moved to Mouloudia Club of Oran a year later before switching to CA Bordj Bou Arreridj where he spent a forgettable two years period.
He joined Mouloudia again in 2010 and got his career on track in the two-years spell before leaving Algeria for Esperance of Tunis where played his best football so far.
A switch to Europe especially France will be the player’s second coming as he spent the 2017 season at French side SCO Angers.
The Algerian international has scored five goals in 18 appearances for the desert Foxes since making his debut in 2015. He was a part of the Algerian side that won the AFCON last year in Egypt.
