CAIRO: Primera Liga side Real Betis are reportedly interested in signing Egypt striker Mohamed Zidan from Hamburg SV next season, according to Estadio Deportivo.
The local newspaper stated that Zidan is among three strikers on the Seville-based club s shortlist for next summer.
The other two are believed to be Tunisia s Francileudo Dos Santos of Toulouse and Udinese hitman Antonio Di Natale.
The paper, which mainly covers Betis and Seville news, also said that the Spanish club is looking to reinforce the team with several new faces before next term.
Betis are currently 10th in the Primera Liga.
Zidan rarely played for Hamburg this term, despite his role in Egypt s 2008 African Cup of Nations triumph in Ghana.
The Egyptian s presence at Nordbank Arena is overshadowed by the good form of striking partners Ivica Olic and Paolo Guerrero
