Leeds United have joined Arsenal and Roma in the hunt to sign Ajax star Noussair Mazraoui.
The 23-year-old has emerged as an important transfer target for the Whites, who are allegedly preparing an offer to land the out-of-contract right-back next year.
With his deal at de Joden arena rapidly expiring, the ace has hired super-agent Mino Raiola to orchestrate his next transfer.
Reports suggest that Marcelo Bielsa’s side are on the lookout for a new right-back, with the injured defender Luke Ayling their only recognised senior player in the role.
The Moroccan would provide healthy competition for the 30-year-old fan-favourite. whose deal expires in 2023.
However, clubs like Gunners and Giallorossi also reportedly keen on him, Leeds United will have to convince the entourage they are his best option.
Noussair has gone on to make 113 senior appearances for Ajax and has won the Eredivisie twice, earning him a call-up to his country’s national team.
Arsenal purchased Takehiro Tomiyasu in the summer to replace the Spaniard Hector Bellerin at right-back, who left the Emirates to join Real Betis on loan.
With Hector likely to leave permanently, Noussair would be signed as an understudy to provide competition for the Japan international.
