CAIRO: Egyptian Premier League runners-up Ismaili signed Argentinean duo Fernando Marquez and German Weiner, the club announced on Sunday.
Striker Marquez and talented attacking midfielder Weiner, who left Argentinean second-division side Union de Santa Fe, penned three-year deals with the Dervishes.
We believe Marquez and Weiner will be good additions to our squad, Ismaili chairman Nasr Aboul-Hassan told FilGoal.com.
Ismaili landed the 25-year-old Weiner and Marquez, 21, to fill the void left by the departure of strike duo Mohamed Fadl and Nasigba John-Jumbo.
Fadl joined Ismaili s rivals Ahly following the expiry of his contract while Nigerian John-Jumbo was not included in the club s preliminary squad for the upcoming season.
Weiner and Marquez are the coastal club s first signings in the close season.
Ismaili, who lost last season s league title to Ahly, are also expected to name their new coach in the coming few days, with Dutchman Mark Wotte a frontrunner to occupy the managerial seat.
