Mumbai City FC has completed its last international signing for the upcoming Indian Super League season by inducting 26-year-old Arnold Nkufo Issoko from Congo into its squad.

The club made the announcement on Tuesday.

Arnold caught the eye of head coach Jorge Costa when he made his senior debut for Rebordosa AC in Portugal.

The midfielder sharpened his skills in various lower divisions in the same country before graduating to the Primiera Liga with GD Chaves.

 

He eventually made 65 appearances for the side and scored eight goals.

His exploits at Chaves led him to another top tier team, Vitoria de Setubal, where he made 36 appearances and scored five goals.

In May 2016, he also represented his national team against Romania in a friendly, which ended in a 1-1 draw.

“I have seen Arnold and like his commitment and spirit. He will be a perfect for us,” Costa said.

In the run-up to the ISL, Mumbai City FC are training in Thailand.
