Sudanese giants Merriekh are reportedly in talks to sign Egyptian striker Amr Zaki in the summer.

According to Sudanese newspaper Al-Sada, the player's agent has set $450,000 as a price for Zaki — a sum still to be discussed by Merriekh officials.

Zaki is a free agent after parting ways amicably with Moroccan side Raja de Casablanca in February.

Zaki, 31, joined Raja in January in a bid to resurrect his faltering career after ending a brief and unsuccessful spell with Kuwaiti club Al-Salmiya.

When Zaki was injured he had to undergo ankle surgery in Munich that sidelined him for the season.

The former Zamalek marksman has struggled to reach form for the past two years due to repeated injuries. He remains a key player in Egypt's national squad, however.
