Leeds United signing Azzedine Ounahi is looking less and less likely with the Whites not convinced that he is worth the £25 million asking price, according to a report from the Yorkshire Evening Post.

It has been a busy January transfer window from Leeds. Max Wober and Georginio Rutter have arrived to bolster Jesse Marsch’s squad as we look to pull ourselves out of bother in the Premier League.

The squad depth is looking strong. But the fans would certainly not say no to the arrival of one more first-team player before the deadline passes.

Leeds not convinced about Ounahi move

And for much of this window, it has appeared that the name at the top of the wishlist is Ounahi off the back of his brilliant World Cup with Morocco.

90min has previously reported that Leeds have made a £22 million bid for the versatile midfielder. But it would now appear that the hopes of a move are evaporating.

The Yorkshire Evening Post reports that a move for Ounahi is looking less likely. And it is claimed that Leeds are not sure that his price is fair.

Victor Orta and the Leeds hierarchy do deserve credit for making signings. There will be no mad dash for a striker. And it appears that we have a superb defender in Wober.

However, the fans would be forgiven for feeling a little flat if there is no further movement at the end of the window. That is partially due to the timing of the signings already made. But it does also appear that there are a couple of areas which need further strengthening.

Left-back has not exactly been addressed, even if Wober can play there. And another central midfielder would be welcome. Marsch only had Sam Greenwood to bring on on Sunday.

Unfortunately, it seems that Leeds may not be expecting to land Ounahi before the deadline.
