Leeds United target Azzedine Ounahi would make an ‘unreal signing’ at Elland Road, according to journalist James Marshment.
The Moroccan was one of his nation’s standout performers at the World Cup, where his side made it all the way to the third-place play-off game, and he’s since been attracting plenty of interest.
The Daily Mail have claimed that the Whites are keen on a move for the Angers midfielder, who is reportedly set to cost a whopping £39m should Victor Orta want to bring him to the Premier League.
Taking to Twitter, Marshment heaped praise on Ounahi for his performances in Qatar and claimed that he would be an excellent addition to Jesse Marsch’s side.
“Watched Morocco with interest at the WC and the two players that caught the eye were Sofyan Amrabat and Azzedine Ounahi.
“Hugely gifted, a great technician and with everything needed to thrive in the PL, he would be an unreal signing for #LUFC.”
TIF thoughts on Ounahi to Leeds…
Ounahi has been dubbed a ‘revelation’ by scout Jacek Kulig so Leeds completing a deal for him is a no-brainer – depending on the fee.
Whether a move comes this month or later in the summer, the Casablanca native currently ranks in the 99th percentile for dribbles completed by midfielders and is a versatile player with the ability to operate in four different positions, so he would add all sorts of creative options in the middle for Marsch.
The Yorkshire outfit are in need of imminent reinforcements to steer them away from danger, and Ounahi’s creativity in the centre could be just what they have been missing.
