Ankaragücü win race to sign Younes Mokhtar!
Ankaragücü have pulled off a major coup with the signing of Moroccan winger Younes Mokhtar on a 3 year deal from FC Zwolle. The 26 year old will team up with his fellow countryman Mostapha El Kabir.
Mokhtar was born in Holland to Moroccan parents and came through the PSV youth academy. The 26 year old has spent most of his career playing in the Super Lig but had a short spell with Al Nasr in Saudi. He scored 10 goals in 36 games last season and had 10 assists.
His preferred position is left wing and is known for his skill, dribbling and speed that will cause problems for defenders in the Super Lig.
Mokhtar turned down offers from Europe and Turkey to sign with Ankaragücü claiming that he heard good things about the club and it’s fans and was looking forward to playing in front of them.
The team is starting to shape up now with more signings expected in the coming weeks.
