ISL IX champions Mohun Bagan Super Giant's attacking line got a huge boost with the arrival of Albanian centre forward Armando Sadiku.

The 32-year-old, who grabbed the headlines by scoring the solitary goal in Albania's historic win over Romania in Euro 2016, penned a two-year contract, the Mariners announced on Sunday.

With the addition of Sadiku, Mohun Bagan will now have a lethal attacking line-up with Dimitri Petratos already in their ranks. The club is also likely to rope in A-League's (Australia's top-tier) Central Coast forward Jason Cummings.

"We now have a good idea about Indian football in Spain. So when they approached me, I looked for the league and the club, and it just took me seven days to give my consent," Sadiku said.

"Mohun Bagan have a huge legacy in Indian football and I'm looking forward to wear the green-and-maroon jersey and play a role in their success."

Sadiku last played for La Liga 2 side FC Cartagena and has a current market value of Rs 5.6 crore. He has played 38 matches for Albania and scored 12 goals.
