Leeds United are one of a number of sides still in talks with Angers about a potential move for Azzedine Ounahi, with 90min reporting that the Whites made the most recent offer for the 22-year-old.

Leeds appear to be closing in on announcing their second signing of the window. Fabrizio Romano has given our pursuit of Georginio Rutter the Here We Go treatment on Twitter.

But perhaps Victor Orta may not be done just yet.

Leeds still in talks to sign Ounahi

Reports from Foot Mercato at the weekend claimed that Leeds had made a bid for Ounahi, who was outstanding for Morocco at the World Cup late last year.

But, unsurprisingly, Leeds are not the only team in the running.

90min reports that Leeds, Leicester and Napoli are all in talks with Angers to sign the midfielder. And it was Leeds who made the most recent offer for the youngster.

Angers have reportedly not rejected any bids for Ounahi. But it is noted in the report that he would prefer to join the Serie A leaders rather than head to the Premier League.

Angers would like to keep Ounahi on loan for the rest of the season. And 90min suggests that Napoli have made a bid that would involve him joining them in the summer.

It does appear that Leeds are facing an uphill battle trying to sign Ounahi. The Whites are in a precarious position in the Premier League. Meanwhile, Napoli are absolutely flying in Serie A.

It would also frustrate many Leeds fans if the club used some of their budget for this window on a player who would not join until the end of the season.

But there is no doubt that it would be a coup if Jesse Marsch’s side won the race.
