KOLKATA: Struggling 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.
