Leeds and Napoli submit offers for Morocco midfielder Azzedine Ounahi

Saber Desfarges of Téléfoot reports this morning that multiple offers have now been made for Angers midfielder Azzedine Ounahi, with the Moroccan World Cup star set to move this winter after his breakout performances in Qatar.

Ounahi, who is also set to change agents, has been the subject of a bid worth €25m from Leeds, the Premier League side being joined by Napoli, who have put less than €20m on the table. Desfarges adds that Marseille are interested in the Atlas Lion, with club president Pablo Longoria in contact with his entourage but not Angers themselves. Barcelona are also keeping tabs, but do not have the means to make a transfer happen for now.

The 22-year-old, who according to L’Équipe has also been the subject of interest from Leicester, has been with Le SCO for a season and a half since making the move from third-tier side Avranches. The Casablanca native has made 47 appearances in all competitions since then, impressing in a team which currently finds itself rock bottom of Ligue 1 after a nine-game losing stream. It was his performances in Morocco’s run to the World Cup semi-finals, though, that have caught the idea of onlookers beyond French football.
