Wolves are reportedly interested in Bayern Munich defender Noussair Mazraoui.

90min have reported that the full-back is attracting a fair bit of attention ahead of the summer transfer window.

Mazraoui has only been with Bayern since last summer, when he signed from Dutch giants Ajax. He was seen as a major coup at the time given how good he had been in the Netherlands.

But his time in Germany has been tough so far.

Mazraoui has made just 20 appearances in all competitions this season. Only 10 of those have been starts.

He has been unable to convince Thomas Tuchel to give him regular minutes, and also Julian Nagelsmann before him.

So now, the player’s representatives have been seeing if there is potential for him to move clubs this summer.

A string of Premier League clubs are mentioned as being interested in 90min’s report. They are Manchester United, Newcastle United, Wolves, Arsenal, West Ham United and Crystal Palace.

These clubs have all asked to be kept informed about Mazraoui’s situation.

In terms of overseas clubs, Inter, Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid are also looking at the Morocco international.

Mazraoui plays as a right-back primarily.

Wolves, at the moment, face losing Nelson Semedo at the end of the season. His contract expires, but the club do have the option to extend it by two years, which you would imagine they will do.

But it is not out of the question Jonny Castro Otto could be offloaded.

If that happens, and loanee Ki-Jana Hoever leaves Wolves after a successful loan spell at Stoke City, then there will be a need for a new right-back.

A potentially good addition for Wolves – Noussair Mazraoui has been likened to Trent Alexander-Arnold

Mazraoui could be a good signing this summer for Wolves, depending on how much Bayern would want for him. The fact they got him on a free transfer might mean they aren’t after demanding an absolutely huge fee.

It hasn’t worked out for Mazraoui at Bayern, but he was superb during his years at Ajax.

According to the official Bundesliga website, the 24-year-old plays like Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold.

They say of him: “He loves to play in the opposition half, where he revels in one-on-ones and linking up with attacking teammates.

“He is a stern reader of the game whose tackling can range from the subtle to the visually impressive sliding clearance. What marks Mazraoui out from the rest, however, is his versatility. During his highly successful 2018/19 campaign, for example, he played on both sides of defence and in defensive and central midfield.”

That is an exciting comparison, so Mazraoui is a name for Wolves fans to keep an eye out for.
