Mohun Bagan today 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 Anusmana Kromah yesterday following a string of poor outings.

“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.

Moghrabi has also been suspended in 2013, when he was named by the Lebanese Football Association in a group of 24 players implicated for match-fixing.

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.
