Ghanaian forward, Aziz Yakubu’s move to Al Ahly has been left in doubt after failing first medical test.
The 24-year-old was expected to join the Egyptian powerhouse from Portuguese side, Rio Ave in a deal worth around 2.5 million Euros.
Yakubu will undergo further tests before Al Ahly will decide on completing the deal or not.
The former Vitoria Guimaraes forward has a poor history with injuries after his move to Azerbaijani giants Qarabag failed due to similar setbacks.
The Tamale-born forward suffered a serious injury during his time with Vizela in 2019.
Despite the injury concerns, the talented forward has been in fine for Rio Ave this season in the Portuguese Primeira Liga. He has scored eight goals in the league for Rio Ave.
Yakubu led Rio Ave to promotion from the second-tier league after finishing the campaign as the club’s top scorer.
