In order to boost their strike-force, Indian Super League (ISL) side Mumbai City FC have signed Amine Chermiti for the 2019-20 season.
The Mumbai-based club on Friday took to Twitter to make the announcement.
“ISLANDERS! Say hello to your new number 9! Welcome to Mumbai, Amine Chermiti!” wrote Mumbai City on Twitter.
📢 ISLANDERS! Say hello to your new number 9⃣! 📢

The striker from Tunisia, who turns 32 later this year, has a vast range of experience under his belt. Chermiti has appeared at the highest level in three continents. In Europe, he has featured in both the Champions League and Europa League with Swiss club FC Zurich. He is the first Tunisian to score a hat-trick in the Europa League.
In his early playing days, Chermiti won the CAF Champions League with Etoile du Sahel in 2007. His eight goals in the campaign helped him win the CAF Africa-based Player of the Year in 2007.
Notably, the left-footed striker can also play as a winger and hence he leaves Mumbai City with a wide range of options while having him on the ground.
‘The Islanders’ have already made a string of signings this season in the likes of Mato Grgic, Rowllin Borges, Surchandra Singh, Sourav Das and Hmingthanmawia.
