Azzedine Ounahi, a Moroccan midfielder now playing for Angers, has reportedly caught LEICESTER’s attention.
The 22-year-old Ounahi was a key player in this year’s amazing World Cup campaign for Morocco.
Before they were ultimately eliminated by France, he assisted the Atlas Lions in making it all the way to the semifinals of the competition.
He has piqued the curiosity of several Premier League clubs, notably Leeds and West Ham, with his strong performances.
Additionally, L’Equipe reports that Leicester has now enquired.
Ounahi is eager to leave Angers in pursuit of a new challenge elsewhere in Europe after his World Cup success.
The midfielder can leave France on loan at the end of the 2022–23 season, but Angers authorities are willing to accept any reasonable transfer offer for him in January.
Next month, Leicester is allegedly ready to make an offer for Ounahi of up to £39.5 million.
It will be vital for the Foxes to add a new midfielder during the forthcoming transfer window since Youri Tielemans, their outstanding player, might leave on a free transfer in June.
Out-of-favour Donny van De Beek of Manchester United has also been linked with a transfer to the King Power Stadium, although Ounahi seems to be Brendan Rodgers’ prime target.
Leicester is also keeping an eye on Tete, a winger for Shakhtar Donetsk.
At Lyon right now, the 22-year-old is having a productive loan season.
In his 13 Ligue 1 games so far this season, he has five goals and three assists.
