Borussia Dortmund striker Mohammed Zidan revealed that he has received offers from both Saudi League champions Al Hilal and an Emirates team to sign him during the summer transfer window.

“I received offers from Saudi side Al Hilal and an Emirates team,” Zidan claimed in his official website on Thursday, adding “I will think about these offers to choose one of them as I am searching for a regular place in a big team squad.”

The 29-year-old forward is considering a move from the Bundesliga champions after being relegated to the bench and failing to book a regular place in the squad last season.

The Pharaohs striker said he would stay at Dortmund if the managerial staff guaranteed him a regular place in the first team squad next season.  

The former Werder Bremen and Hamburg player also confirmed that Ahly's marketing manager had been in contact and informed him about the Reds interest last month.
