Saudi Arabian outfit Al-Hilal are looking to reinforce their frontline for next season following the departure of Omar Khribin and Bafétimbi Gomis' potential exit following the current campaign. Portuguese media reports state that Al Hilal are interested in signing FC Porto's Malian striker Moussa Marega.

According to Portuguese news outlet Record, the 30-year-old striker has received an offer from Al Hilal under which he would earn 15 million euros over three seasons. Marega's current contract with Porto runs out this year which means he has the right to sign for any club without the need for the Portuguese club's approval.

Marega has played for several sides including Amiens SC, C.S. Marítimo, and Esperance Sportive de Tunis, while he joined the ranks of FC Porto in 2017 having made 189 appearances in all competitions netting 72 goals and providing 33 assists.

Al Hilal's administration has been targeting several attacking options to secure their services in the next summer transfer window amidst emerging reports suggesting the departure of their talisman Bafétimbi Gomis who has suffered a recent drop in form. Al Zaeem have already started the implementation of their reinforcement plan by signing Luciano Vietto in the winter in addition to letting go of the Syrian Omar Khribin.
