The international striker completed his move last week to Ligue 1 side Nantes from Turkish club Galatasaray on a season-long loan with an option to make the deal permanent.

“I am ready for all challenges,” Mostafa Mohamed told a news conference on Tuesday as the French side unveiled him as a team player.

“I want to realise great success with the team and to be a part of the club history.”

The 24-year-old revealed that the team’s coach played a vital role in convincing him to join the club and to be a part of the club’s project in the new season.

The former Zamalek striker added that he is ready to be part of the team for Nantes’ upcoming clash against PSG in the French Super Cup set to be played in the end of this month.

“We are all ready for this clash. It will be a tough clash and we are mentally ready for the game.”

Nantes, who ended ninth in the league table last season, clinched the French Cup to secure a place in the Europa League. 

Mohamed joined Galatasaray from Cairo giants Zamalek on a one-and-a-half-season loan deal in January 2021, with an option to make it permanent for $4 million.

Last December, the club informed Zamalek that they would take up the option to sign the Egyptian international on a permanent basis.

Mohamed scored 17 goals in 59 appearances in all competitions with Galatasaray.
