Azzedine Ounahi transfer news

Who would have believed that Azzedine Ounahi would start for Morocco in the knockouts of the World Cup, and perform as brilliantly as he did? Morocco did crash out at the hands of 2018 champions France who lost to Argentina in a thrilling final, but at just 22 years of age, Azzedine Ounahi has shown through his impressive performances on the world stage that he is most certainly one to look out for in the years to come.

All that will become clear soon enough, but for now, it is best simply to enjoy him as he lights up the world stage, and to appreciate how far Azzedine Ounahi, the skinny kid with the number eight on his back, has already come. And a transfer in this winter transfer window of 2023 look likely if his performance in Qatar are anything to go by.
