AC Milan were left impressed by Azzedine Ounahi’s performances at the World Cup and could make a move to sign him, a report claims.
Morocco were the surprise package of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and the 22-year-old Ounahi was a big part of that. The Angers midfielder has risen to prominence with his impressive performances for his country, and now there is a flurry of speculation about his future.
According to Carlo Laudisa of La Gazzetta dello Sport, Milan watched his performances and liked what they saw, as Ounahi combined work rate with technical quality and could therefore plug a gap in the midfield having not signed an established player over the summer to replace Kessie.
Interestingly, Angers president Said Chabane recently stated that the club have received multiple offers from top European clubs for Ounahi.
Speaking to RTL Sport, Chabane said: “We have offers for Azzedine Ounahi. Approaches from big clubs and medium clubs. It comes from everywhere. Italy, Spain, England and France. Our wish is to find a deal in January, but that it remains until the end of the season.”
The Rossoneri could therefore try to secure a deal for the talented young midfielder that would see him join ahead of 2023-24, but they seemingly face a lot of competition.
