This summer will be remembered forever as the one where the Saudi Pro League attracted many stars to join their league. But even if most teams have completed high profile moves, the need to boost their squads seems to be growing with each passing minute.
Earlier today, Neymar was confirmed as Al Hilal's superstar for the next two years after signing a whopping deal with the Saudi Arabian outfit. Now, the club is reportedly eyeing more reinforcements, this time to boost their goalkeeping department.
Reports coming in from Spain and Greece suggest that Al Hilal have a couple of options to add depth to their No.1 spot. The first one of those is Moroccan goalkeeper Yassine Bounou, while the other one is Keylor Navas. Both their clubs seem open to make deals for their services, but there are different circumstances surrounding their potential exits.
Navas' case seems to be easier, as Al Hilal have a great relationship with PSG and already know that the Costa Rican goalie has been named as surplus to Luis Enrique's requirements. Added to that, coach Jorge Jesús has approved the deal, leaving all negotiations to his employers. Navas is still under contract with PSG until 2024, but with Luis Enrique open to letting him leave, negotiations could be swift between both clubs.
The other option is still promising for Al Hilal, as Sevilla's complicated financial situation would force them to let one of their finest players leave the club. Nonetheless, the team will wait until after the UEFA Super Cup to start negotiations for the Moroccan ace. According to reports, Sevilla would be willing to part ways with Bono for a bit over $20M.
While the amount of money spent on Neymar would make fans believe Al Hilal are no longer interested in adding talent to their squad, any of these moves would make them title contenders for all competitions the team gets involved in. Which of these goalkeepers would you hire? Let's wait and see what the Arabian club decides.
