Luis Edison Tarabai (centre) was approached by Premier League side Birkirkara.

Birkirkara have made an approach to sign Brazilian striker Luis Edison, known as Tarabai, the Times of Malta can reveal.

The Stripes have been one of the most active teams from the top flight during this month’s transfer window as they look to rejuvenate their squad before the Premier League resumes this weekend.

Since the start of the transfer window, Birkirkara have already secured the services of three players, namely wing back Clayton Failla, midfielder Johann Bezzina and Brazilian striker Jorginho.

The Stripes are also set to unveil Maurizio Vella as their fourth signing after the Argentine underwent his medical yesterday.

However, it looks like Birkirkara are not finished yet and they keen to further bolster their squad with the signing of Tarabai.

The Brazilian striker is currently plying his trade in Saudi Arabia with Al Raed but it looks like the 33-year-old could return to Maltese football this month.

Sources have told the Times of Malta that earlier this month, that a Birkirkara top official made an approach to Tarabai to return to Maltese football.

Tarabai has enjoyed a successful spell in Maltese football with Hibernians where he helped them win the Premier League title in season 2014-15 and two FA Trophies during his time with the Paola club.

At Hibs, Tarabai had forged a lethal scoring partnership with Jorginho, scoring 87 goals in 113 appearances with the Paolites in all competitions.

Birkirkara are said to be mulling to try and reunite Tarabai with Jorginho who has just joined the Stripes from Gżira United this month.

However, Birkirkara Techincal Director Michael Valenzia has denied that the Stripes made an approach for the player.

“Tarabai is a talented player and we would be interested should he become available but so far we didn’t make any approach for the player,” Valenzia said.

The next few weeks will shed more light on whether the Stripes will step up their efforts to bring in the former Hibernians striker.
