KUWAIT CITY, June 22: Local clubs are ramping up efforts to recruit foreign players to bolster their squads, with recent days seeing increased activity in player contracts. Al-Arabi, known as “Al-Akhdar,” is in advanced negotiations to secure Algerian player Ahmed Khalidi. The 25-year-old right winger, who previously played for Constantine, Hilal Shalghoum El Eid, and Olympia Medea, is close to finalizing terms.

Additionally, Al-Arabi has begun negotiations with Algerian midfielder Zakaria Draoui. According to Al-Arabi Secretary Fouad Al-Mazidi, the first team’s training will commence on June 29, with plans to depart for a foreign camp in Bosnia on July 18. This camp will run until early August and will feature several friendly matches.

Al-Mazidi also mentioned that the club does not intend to pursue any more local deals after signing Yaqoub Al-Tarawa and Mohamed Khaled. The technical staff, led by coach Nasser Al-Shatti, will decide on the potential return of loaned Algerian defender Sofiane Bouchard.

Negotiations to include Ahmed Al-Zenki from Al-Kuwait and Al-Azraq clubs fell through at the last minute.

Moroccan professional Mehdi Barahma has announced his departure from Kuwait Club after three successful seasons. On Instagram, Barahma expressed gratitude to the club, saying, “I spent 3 seasons full of competition and titles. I wish Kuwait more achievements and titles. Thank you.”

Barahma’s tenure saw Kuwait Club win the Kuwaiti Premier League title three times. The club is set to participate in the AFC Champions League 2 qualifying round, facing a tough match against Bahrain’s Al-Ahly.

Press reports suggest that Al-Qadisiya has initiated negotiations to acquire another Moroccan player, though details remain undisclosed.

Brazilian professional Anselmo de Moraes, who played for Saudi Al-Wahda last season, has received an offer from an unnamed Kuwaiti club. Anselmo contributed five goals and one assist last season and has previously been loaned to Al-Nasr Saudi Arabia.
