Leeds United have reportedly offered Angers midfielder Azzedine Ounahi a contract worth around £2.21m per season.
Victor Orta and co may not stop there, though, with recent speculation also emerging on Ounahi. Reports have claimed that the club have tabled an offer for the Morocco international, who has been labelled ‘sensational’ by reporter Zach Lowy.
Ignazio Genuardi reported on Twitter on Thursday evening that Leeds could make Ounahi their third January signing and have in fact made an offer in the region of €25m (£22.1m).
He added that a contract worth €2.5m (£2.21m) a year has also been put to the midfielder, a salary which works out at around £42,500-a-week, more than Luke Ayling and Wilfried Gnonto combined.
TIF thoughts on Ounahi…
Ounahi enjoyed a brilliant World Cup with his country, which resulted in his Transfermarkt valuation rocketing from €3.5m to €15m.
Still just 22 years of age, you’d expect that he has room to improve even further and would provide Marsch with another option as a holding, central or attacking midfielder.
That may prove extremely handy in the second half of the season following Matusz Klich’s departure, so it will be interesting to see how this one plays out over the coming days and weeks after the Whites’ latest move.
