Azzedine Ounahi prioritising Serie A move, Napoli in pole position

Foot Mercato are reporting that SCO Angers midfielder Azzedine Ounahi (22) is prioritising a move to Serie A, with Napoli in pole position in pole position to land the Moroccan international. 

Ounahi shone at the World Cup with the Atlas Lions, leaving clubs across Europe coveting the Angers player. The Ligue 1 club, currently rock-bottom of the French top-flight, and managerless, are seemingly resigned to losing the player. L’Équipe have previously linked Premier League side Leicester City with a move, with a fee of €45m being discussed. 

However, as Foot Mercato now report, Ounahi would prefer to Serie A, and the player may not cost as much as is being quoted in L’Équipe. Napoli are currently in pole position and would be willing to loan Ounahi back to Angers for the rest of the season, as is the Ligue 1 club’s preference. In Italy, Inter Milan are also interested. 

In France, Olympique de Marseille are very interested in the player, but Angers doubt the financial means of their Ligue 1 rivals.
