Leicester submit offer for Angers’ Azzedine Ounahi

L’Équipe report today that Leicester are the first club to have made an offer for Angers midfielder Azzedine Ounahi, who has emerged as one of the most sought-after targets of the upcoming winter transfer window following his impressive performances at the World Cup with Morocco.

The offer is said to consist of a base fee of €20m, along with an additional €10m should the Foxes qualify for the Champions League. Angers are hoping for a higher fee, with negotiations set to drive that figure up.

The 22-year-old has been with Le SCO for the last season and a half, having joined from third-tier Avranches and continued his quick rise to the top as he featured in the Atlas Lions’ run to the semi-finals in Qatar. With his current club sitting rock bottom in Ligue 1 and currently on an eight-game losing streak, it appears unlikely that Ounahi will be staying for much longer, not least with the calibre of clubs taking an interest.
