Egyptian club Zamalek to host a meeting Tuesday with officials from Italian Serie A side Torino to negotiate a loan offer for playmaker Mostafa Fathi.

"We have held an initial meeting Monday evening and we haven't reach an agreement yet," Zamalek board member Ahmed Mortada Mansour was quoted as saying on Ahram Sports.

The Italian club have previously offered 500,000 euros to sign the 22-year-old player in a six-month loan deal starting January, with an option to make the deal permanent for 2.5 million euros in the summer.

Fathi, renowned for his outstanding dribbling skills and ability to dodge opponents in one-on-one situations, has established himself as one of Zamalek's key players since joining the club as a teenager in 2013.

This is not the first time a Serie A club have shown interest in Fathi as Bologna made a similar bid to Zamalek in June but was rejected.

Zamalek lie third in the Egyptian league table with 34 points, 9 behind leaders Ahly, who have played two matches more.

Torino, who finished 12th in the Italian league last season, lie eighth in this season's table this season with 29 points, 16 behind leaders Juventus, who played one match less.
