Leeds United planning transfer bid for Tottenham Hotspur target Azzedine Ounahi
Ounahi is on the radar of Tottenham as well. The talented midfielder had a stellar World Cup with Morocco. He was one of the best players in the tournament and caught a lot of eyes on his performances.
The 22-year-old midfielder was the heartbeat of the Moroccan midfielder and along with Sofyan Arambat, they were the pillars behind Morocco’s unlikely semi-final run in the tournament.
After Georginio Rutter deal, Leeds will decide how to proceed on Azzedine Ounahi deal as initial talks took place days ago with player side and Angers 🇲🇦 #LUFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) January 14, 2023
There are many clubs interested in Ounahi, including Napoli which offered €15m days ago. PSG will not sign him. pic.twitter.com/D4dSfU5I3u
At such a young age, Ounahi seems so composed on the ball, always making the right decisions and finding a way to make the right pass. He has a Mateo Kovacic-esque feel to him in how he plays midfield.
Napoli are another club interested in signing the player and Romano has claimed that the Serie A league leaders offered €15m days ago. However, the payer is yet to decide on his future as things stand.
The arrival of Leeds United means its another competitor for Tottenham. The Whites are keen on signing the Moroccan and are planning a bid for him and this could tempt Ounahi to join Jesse March’s side.
If Tottenham are really keen on signing Ounahi, they have to be quick in the way they progress about this deal. With so much competition, every day we wait will see the 22-year-old slip away from us.
If Conte & co. want Ounahi, he could be the creative presence that we are lacking in the team for quite some time now. However, there could be certain things that we need to be apprehensive about when it comes to the signing.

Signing a player based on his World Cup performances has historically not gone down well for many clubs. We need to see if the 22-year-old can adapt to the Premier League before making a call on him.
