Leeds: Whites still interested in signing Noussair Mazraoui

Leeds: Whites still interested in signing Noussair Mazraoui -Leeds United News

Leeds United are reportedly in the hunt to sign Ajax right-back Noussair Mazraoui this summer, with several clubs battling to acquire his signature.

The Lowdown: Mazraoui shining at Ajax

The Moroccan has arguably stood out as one of Europe’s premier right-backs in recent years, catching the eye with his barnstorming performances.

Mazraoui has again been a key player for Ajax this season, scoring five times and registering two assists in the Eredivisie, as well as making seven Champions League appearances.

The 24-year-old has been linked with a move to Leeds recently and it is a rumour that doesn’t appear to be going away.

The Latest: Leeds chiefs eyeing move

According to Calciomercato [via Sport Witness], Mazraoui is ‘liked’ by those high up at Leeds, although they aren’t alone in expressing an interest.

European heavyweights Barcelona and AC Milan are also mentioned as potential suitors, as are Arsenal.

The Verdict: Long-term Ayling replacement?

Mazraoui could be an exceptional signing for Leeds if they managed to get a deal over the line this summer, with his energy and attacking ability perfect for Jesse Marsch’s style of play.

He could also be an ideal long-term replacement for Luke Ayling, who at 30, won’t necessarily remain in his peak years for much longer.

Mazraoui has averaged 1.4 key passes and 1.6 dribbles per game in the league this season – only Raphinha (2.0) has enjoyed more of both at Leeds, which says a lot about his attacking quality.
