Wolves transfer news: Wanderers showing interest in Azzedine Ounahi

Wolves are reportedly showing interest in one of the stars of the Morocco national team, Azzedine Ounahi.

According to 90min, interest has drawn significant attention following a string of impressive performances at the World Cup.

Morocco exited the tournament last night at the hands of France, who will take on Argentina in Sunday’s final.

But Ounahi again put in a great performance in midfield alongside Sofyan Amrabat.

Ounahi quick feet and ball carrying ability have led to many teams now showing an interest in him.

90min say European giants like Barcelona, Inter, Juventus, Lyon and Paris Saint-Germain all fancy the 22-year-old.

It is then claimed that Leicester City, Newcastle United, Southampton, West Ham United and Wolves have ‘digested’ his performances in Qatar, as have Atalanta over in Serie A.

There’s no word on how much Ounahi could cost.

But 90min point out that he is under contract at Angers until the summer of 2026.

That means the French club could well demand a huge fee.

Wanderers need to start planning for life after Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho and possibly even Matheus Nunes.

Neves and Nunes have both been linked with exits from the club over the past couple of months.

And Moutinho may well be playing out his final season at Molineux at the age of 36.

Azzedine Ounahi would be an exciting signing for Wolves, but competition is very strong

Ounahi has been absolutely brilliant for his country at the World Cup.

He’s also been performing really well for Angers, who are actually bottom of Ligue 1 at the moment.

The star is second only to Lionel Messi (47) in the French top-flight for number of successful dribbles (37) so far. That’s 10 more than Kylian Mbappe (via Sky Sports).

It’s very possible he will be on the move in January and he’d make an exciting signing for Wanderers.

Wolves and Angers have done business before over Rayan Ait-Nouri. But following his performances in Qatar, Wolves will be up against it to sign Ounahi, with so many other clubs keen.
