Wolves transfer news: Leeds and Napoli make offers for Ounahi

Leeds United have reportedly made an offer for reported Wolves transfer target Azzedine Ounahi.

According to Telefoot journalist Saber Desfarges, the Whites have now tabled a bid for the Morocco international, who was one of the breakout stars of the World Cup.

Ounahi’s future has been the subject of heavy speculation in recent weeks.

Angers are said to be looking to cash in on the midfielder following his exploits in Qatar.

Leeds’ offer is apparently worth around £22 million.

And Serie A giants Napoli have also made an offer for the 22-year-old. Theirs is apparently worth £17.6 million.

There is no word about any kind of offer from Wolves yet.

Supposedly, Ounahi is a player that is on the club’s radar this month.

He may be someone Julen Lopetegui is especially keen to sign now following the injury for Boubacar Traore.

The Malian dynamo could be out for up to two months.

After the recent game with Aston Villa, Lopetegui suggested that he wanted to dip into the transfer market.

Wolves will have to get a move on if they want Azzedine Ounahi, as Leeds and Napoli make offer

So Leeds and Napoli have both reportedly come to the table with offers for Ounahi.

One would imagine Angers will reject both.

It is still early in the window, and the French club may feel there’s a chance to secure a higher fee for Ounahi, especially after his World Cup performances.

It remains to be seen if Wolves will come and get involved, for a player the BBC’s Danny Murphy branded ‘sensational’ during Morocco’s World Cup semi-final with France.

He could be a great addition to the squad. He’d also be a good player to bring in ahead of the potential departures of Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho this summer.
