Leeds United submit bid for Azzedine Ounahi

Leeds United submit bid for Azzedine Ounahi -Leeds United News

Leeds United have reportedly made a bid for Morocco star Azzedine Ounahi.

The Lowdown: Great World Cup for Ounahi

Morocco were the surprise package of the 2022 World Cup, incredibly reaching the semi-finals, not to mention knocking out Spain and Portugal along the way.

Ounahi was an undisputed key man for his country in Qatar, starting six matches overall and providing endless energy and quality in midfield areas.

The 22-year-old averaged 1.4 dribbles and 1.3 tackles per game at the World Cup, highlighting his effectiveness on both sides of the ball.

The Latest: Leeds eye double deal

According to Foot Mercato, Leeds are ‘currently completing the arrival of Frenchman Georginio Rutter’, and next up comes a move for Ounahi.

The report states that a bid has been tabled for the young Moroccan, who currently plies his trade at Angers in France, though there is no mention of how the Ligue 1 outfit have responded to Victor Orta’s opening offer.

The Verdict: Could be a great addition

Ounahi could be a fantastic signing by Leeds if they manage to get a deal over the line, with Jose Mourinho hailing him as ‘absolutely incredible’ during the World Cup.

Raphinha in action for Leeds United

Leeds fans, do you remember how much Raphinha's move to Barcelona was worth?

Tyler Adams and Brenden Aaronson have both been great additions by the Whites, and if they could sign the Morocco star as well, their midfield could suddenly look full of youthful exuberance and quality on and off the ball..

Ounahi possesses long-term potential and his energetic style of play would suit Marsch down to the ground – he covered more distance (14.7km) than anyone against Spain last month – so sealing a move for him, alongside Rutter, is a no-brainer.
