Struggling Mohun Bagan on Friday announced the signing of Lebanese striker Akram Moghrabi for the remainder of the 2017-18 I-League season.

Mohun Bagan, languishing at fifth place in the points table, parted ways with Liberian forward Ansumanah Kromah following a string of poor outings in the I-League. “With immense pleasure we wish to state that Mohun Bagan have roped in Lebanese striker Akram Moghrabi for 2017-18 season.

The striker is in Lebanon and will apply for his visa today,” the club said in a statement. Moghrabi, who has previously plied his trade on Indian soil in the 2012-13 season with Churchill Brothers when he helped the Goan side clinch the I-League title, is expected to fill the void up front along with Dipanda Dicka.

The Green and Maroons lost to Minerva Punjab FC 1-2 in their last game in which Kromah missed a spot kick. Mohun Bagan have 13 points from nine matches and are six points behind leaders Minerva, having played the same number of games.
