Egyptian Premier League side Pharco FC signed on Thursday Salah Basha, the captain of Egypt's Under-20, from Italian Serie C club Giugliano on the final day of the summer transfer window in Egypt.

The 20-year-old striker, who previously played for Udinese's Under-19 team, joined Giugliano in January 2023.

However, his time at the club was marred by injury, limiting him to just one appearance and causing him to miss out on several matches.

Basha also suffered a muscular injury that prevented him from participating in the 2023 Africa Under-20 Cup of Nations, where Egypt was eliminated in the group stage.

Before his move to Giugliano, the talented young player showcased his skills with Udinese's youth team, scoring an impressive 34 goals and providing seven assists in 71 appearances.

On the international stage, Basha has represented Egypt's Under-20 team, making six appearances and scoring four goals. He has also featured in two matches for the Under-17 team.

Pharco FC finished 9th in the Egyptian Premier League table last season with 42 points.
