Al Alami made a significant statement this season by bolstering their defense. They signed European talents like Aymeric Laporte, Alex Telles, and Seko Fofana in the transfer window. Furthermore, Al Nassr took the next step to extend the contracts of their defenders signed earlier. Sultan Al Ghannam’s previous contract expired with Al Alami, rendering him a free agent this season. The Saudi side proposed extending his contract until 2028 to retain him in the squad.

Evidently, Ronnie’s side intends to solidify their defense further to better withstand challenges from rivals. Reports suggest that Al Nassr is currently in discussion to renew the contract of their left back, Ayman Yahya. The Saudi Arabian defender joined Al Alami in 2019 and next went for a loan spell at Al Ahli during the 2021-22 season. Yahya returned to the club this season but will become a free agent by the following year. As a result, Al Nassr looks forward to renewing his contract until 2027. This would maintain their defense’s excellent shape and help to continue the impressive performances.
