Al Ahli Jeddah signs Firas Al-Buraikan from Al-Fateh

Al Ahli Jeddah has officially signed Saudi international striker Firas Al-Buraikan from Al-Fateh on a five-year contract announcement.

Just a day after he scored and assisted in securing a historic 5-1 victory for Al-Fateh over Al Ahli Jeddah, they announced the deal.

In an effort to revive their season, Al Ahli has opted to sign Al-Buraikan in a €9 million deal, setting a record sale for Al-Fateh.

The 23-year-old, who has netted four goals and provided one assist in five games for Al-Fateh this season, will now represent Al Ahli in their inaugural season back in the Saudi Pro League.

Al-Buraikan has officially signed a five-year deal that commits him to Jeddah until the summer of 2028.

Having emerged from the Al-Nassr youth sector, Al-Buraikan made the switch to Al-Fateh in 2021, where he notched 33 goals in 65 appearances.

Al-Buraikan boasts 32 Saudi caps, during which he found the net six times. He was a pivotal part of the squad that competed in the 2023 World Cup, contributing to a memorable victory over Argentina with an assist.
