Ibrahim Mohammed Ghaleb Jahshan (Arabic: إبراهيم محمد غالب جحشان; born 28 September 1990) is a Saudi Arabian footballer. He currently plays for Al-Nassr in the Saudi Professional League.

Club career[edit]

Ghaleb joined the Al-Nassr U-17 team in the summer of 2006. As he was under the scouts' eyes, Al-Nassr U-17 team manager, Nasir AlKanani, succeeded in including Ghaleb in his talent U-17 squad. Not surprisingly, with his accurate passes and mature look in the first year, Ghaleb did not take a long time to get promoted to the first team. His first appearance was in the middle of the 2008/2009 season, when the Argentine Edgardo Bauza picked him for the line-up in a match against arch rival Al-Hilal. These kinds of games were considered to be tough for a young 17-year-old player. However, Ghaleb surprised spectators with his talent by keeping control of the ball and making accurate passes. Since then, he has assured his position in the squad.

On 8 March 2010, Ghaleb signed with a couple of other young talent players, the first professional contract in his career with Al-Nassr ending in 2015.[1]

International career[edit]

He made his debut for Saudi national team on 14 October 2010. He participated in the middle of the second half in an international friendly against Tunisia.[2]
