Ahmed Kasoum (Arabic: أحمد قاصوم‎‎, Hebrew: אחמד קאסום‎‎, born January 25, 1985) is an Arab-Israeli footballer. He currently plays for Hapoel Acre.

After playing three professional seasons with Bnei Sakhnin, the club was relegated to the Liga Leumit (2nd tier). Instead of remaining with the club, Kasoum was bought by Hapoel Petah Tikva for a hefty sum of US $170,000. Having suffered a rash of injuries, Kasoum's playing time diminished at Hapoel. Following the club's relegation to the Liga Leumit, he was loaned to F.C. Ashdod, and after he returned to the club for the start of the 2008–09 season, he got back to Bnei Sakhnin in January 2009. Right Now, Kasoum is a Bnei Sakhnin player and he scored the most goals that a player in Bnei Sakhnin ever scored in Ligat Ha'al
