Valencia battle Tottenham, Leicester for Ajax’s Noussair Mazraoui

Valencia are rivalling interest from Tottenham and Leicester in Ajax defender Noussair Mazraoui, according to reports.

The 21-year-old was influential for Ajax last season as they won the Eredivisie title and reached the semi-final stage of the Champions League.

He featured in 48 matches for the Dutch giants including 16 starts in the European competition, bringing him to wider prominence – netting four goals and providing five assists.

However, this season he has been more of a fringe player for the Amsterdam-based club, starting just six games across all competitions although he has suffered a thigh muscle strain in this time.

A report in AS Roma Live has now highlighted interest in his signature from English duo Tottenham and Leicester, alongside Los Che and Italian club Roma.

The report does not outline how much the full-back, who has won six caps for the Morocco national side, is likely to cost.
