Bencharki first started his career at Moroccan club MAS Fes, before making a move to Morocco giants Wydad Casablanca in August 2016.
During his time with Wydad, the 24-year-old scored eight goals and made seven assists leading the club to winning the CAF Champions League and the title of Moroccan professional league (BOTOLA PRO).
Achraf Bencharki has only made one appearance with the Moroccan international team in a game against Ivory Coast in November 2017.
Zamalek president Mortada Mansour commented on Bencharki transfer saying: “We got the signing of Bencharki on a three-year deal, and I think Amir and Ahmed Mortada on the effort to complete this big signing,”
He added: “We defined negotiations in a secret meeting in Morocco and the player will land in Egypt on Wednesday. Bencharki is a great player, in the time being we are discussing including Hamid Ahadad in the deal or loaning him out to another club.”
