Azzedine Ounahi transfer news- which club will sign the Moroccan young starlet in 2023?
Azzedine Ounahi transfer news
Morocco’s historic run to the semi-finals of the World Cup opened the eyes of the world to the talent in their squad, none more so than 22-year-old Ounahi.
The midfielder, whose all-energy, all-action displays were key to the Atlas Lions’ run to the final four will likely not stick around Ligue 1 basement boys Angers, who themselves might take the opportunity to cash in on their star – especially with the likes of cash-rich Newcastle reportedly interested in the player. Alley sport brings you all the news and information about Azzedine Ounahi transfer news.
Ounahi was one of the breakout stars of the 2022 FIFA World Cup as the midfielder played a huge role in Morocco making history out in Qatar, becoming the first African and Arabic nation to make it to the semi-finals as the Atlas Lions eliminated both Spain and Portugal.
And as a result, Ounahi’s stock has risen considerably for the January transfer window, with Tottenham seemingly now in talks to sign the midfielder despite Leicester making a bid for the youngster just a few days ago.
Ounahi has become a transfer target for a number of Europe’s top teams among them Barcelona, Tottenham Hotspur, Marseille and Leicester City after his starring role for Morocco at the World Cup.
Arguably the biggest “find” of the World Cup, Ounahi impressed from start to finish, displaying brilliant technical details — flicks, dribbles and constructive touches — with admirable consistency. With a blend of positive, crisp passing and purposeful running — line-breaking and in transition — Ounahi was a constant threat from midfield while still sticking to his defensive duties.

However it is reported that Napoli are very close to signing Azzedine Ounahi and they are willing to pay 20m euros in order to get his signature but Angers want a fee more than that. One thing that could put Napoli ahead in the race is their willingness to send Ounahi back on loan with Angers until the end of the season, something that the French club are keen on.
His performances for Morocco not only presented him as a modern, dynamic No. 8 but also beg the question of how such a talented midfielder can be languishing at the bottom of Ligue 1. As a result of the show he put on in Qatar, the midfielder is being linked with moves to the Premier League.
With central midfield a key position for Tottenham to improve on this January, Ounahi could be the ideal signing to solve Spurs’ problems in the area given just how impressive the youngster was at the World Cup, with the youngster also shining in Ligue 1 before Qatar.
