Leeds: Whites preparing Noussair Mazraoui move

Leeds: Whites preparing Noussair Mazraoui move -Leeds United

Leeds United are preparing an offer for Ajax right-back Noussair Mazraoui, according to The Sun.

The Lowdown: Mazraoui profiled

Mazraoui is 24 years of age and has progressed through Ajax’s youth system, spending time alongside Leeds colossus Pascal Struijk before the centre-back moved to Yorkshire.

The Morocco international, sponsored by Leeds’ partners Adidas, has made 118 appearances for the Dutch giants, with four of his nine senior goals coming this season.

Mazraoui can also play as a central or defensive midfielder and is out of contract at the end of the season, meaning Leeds could look at a cut-price move in January.

The Latest: Preparing offer

The Sun shared a story on Tuesday afternoon, suggesting Leeds have joined the race for Mazraoui’s services, with Arsenal and Roma also keen.

They claim that Victor Orta and co are preparing an offer to land the 24-year-old, who has hired super-agent Mino Raiola to help with his next move.

The Verdict: Smart option?

Mazraoui has been described as a player with plenty of pace, and so it seems as if he is a player who would fit perfectly into Marcelo Bielsa’s high-intensity style of play.

The full-back has contributed to seven goals during the current campaign from right-back and would also be able to provide cover in midfield – Bielsa has shown to be a fan of this sort of versatility, just look at Stuart Dallas.

He has plenty of Champions League experience for Ajax, and with Leeds looking to challenge for European football within two or three years, Mazraoui could be the calibre of player the club needs to go to the next level.
