Leeds: Noussair Mazraoui reveals exit plan -Leeds United Transfer Rumours

Leeds United target Noussair Mazraoui has stated that there is just a 5% chance he will remain an Ajax player ahead of the 2022/23 season, according to The Sun.

The Lowdown: Orta keen on Mazraoui

The Whites are looking to bring in a midfielder before the January transfer window slams shut, with Brenden Aaronson a key target.

However, they have been linked with a move for Mazraoui, who progressed through Ajax’s youth system alongside Leeds colossus Pascal Struijk, for even longer.

Reports back in November suggested that Leeds and Victor Orta were weighing up a move for the Adidas-sponsored defender. The full-back’s contract situation hasn’t changed, with the 24-year-old set to become a free agent in the summer as things stand.

The Latest: Mazraoui speaks out

As reported by The Sun on Tuesday evening, Leeds are still keen on a move for the speedster, as are Arsenal and AS Roma.

Mazraoui admitted that he is ‘open’ to a new challenge and revealed there is only a 5% chance he will still be an Ajax player next season.

The Verdict: Pre-contract agreement?

Even though Orta has his hands full in the final days of the January window, a pre-contract agreement for Mazraoui ahead of a free transfer in the summer could be an excellent piece of business.

The Morocco international has plenty of experience at the highest level for both club and country and is clearly an attack-minded full-back, as he has already contributed to eight goals this season.

He can also play in midfield when required, so landing an £18m-rated player for nothing seems to be a no-brainer. It’s just a question of whether he would entertain a move to Yorkshire over Arsenal or Roma.
