  • Latest Indian football news features FC Pune City as they are engaged in moves to achieve glory for the upcoming ISL 2018-19 season
  • The Pune-based ISL team completed the double signing of midfielders, Alwyn George and Nikhil Poojari

The latest Indian football news revealed that ISL team FC Pune City, which saw a top-four finish in ISL football last season, are making moves to overhaul their squad and maybe aim for an even higher finish in the upcoming ISL 2018-19 season. The ISL team completed the double signing of midfielders Alwyn George and Nikhil Poojari only a few months ahead of the ISL 2018-19 season.

While Alwyn George was roped in by FC Pune City from champion ISL team Bengaluru FC, Nikhil Poojari was brought in from the I-League side East Bengal FC, who have been making waves in latest Indian football news as well, after signing a mammoth deal with the Quess Corporation. While East Bengal FC were reportedly trying to make a move to ISL football, that has been put to a stop for now. However, it doesn’t mean that the EBFC players cannot move to the Indian Super League.

While Alwyn George is an experienced footballer who has played for the Indian national football team eight times, the attacking midfielder has also played for Bengaluru FC, Delhi Dynamos, FC Goa, Dempo and the Indian Arrows (formerly known as Pailan Arrows). On the other hand, the 22-year-old Nikhil Poojari has played for just one professional season, where he represented the East Bengal FC, helping the team end their 2017-18 I-League season with a decent finish.

FC Pune City announced their ISL transfer news on their Twitter, and sent waves in the latest Indian football news, as the midfielders are set to join Robin Singh as the fresh signings for the ISL 2018-19 season.

Having completed his transfer to Pune City, Nikhil Poojari will now be one of the best Indian midfielders in ISL football and knowing that he is just 22-years-old, there is bound to be the mention of his name in latest Indian football news and specifically, the ISL news.

FC Pune City are seemingly on an upward move in ISL football, having finished for the first time in a playoff spot in ISL football last season. Now with the latest ISL transfer news reporting more than a few new signings, Pune City are promising to pose legit threat to other table toppers for the ISL 2018-19 season.
