Belgian giants Anderlecht are chasing Ahly's international midfielder Mahmoud Hassan "Trezeguet" in order to sign him this summer.

The Cairo giants have received a 700,000 Euro offer that could reach 1 million Euro according to the player's possible appearances with Anderlecht.

However, Ahly have turned down the bid and are attempting to persuade the 22-year-old midfielder to stay on with his alma mater for one more season, according to Ahram Sport.

The Red Devils are trying to rebuild their squad in order to bounce back on top of Egyptian and African Football.

The eight-time African Champions have been knocked out from the Champions League at early stages over the past two years, and are currently trailing 11 points behind leaders Zamalek.

Trezeguet has been a rising figure among the new generation taking over at Ahly following the retirement of iconic figures like Mohamed Abou-Treika, Mohamed Barakat and Wael Gomaa.

He has established himself as one of the key figures at Ahly making his way quickly to Egypt's team.

Anderlecht have traditionally kept an eye on Egyptian football, signing successful players like former Egypt's internationals Ahmed Hassan and Tarek El-Said in the early 2000s.

Ahly might be forced to let go of their star if he insists on leaving, and a better offer is presented by the Belgians.
