Leicester City interested in signing Onassi with an offer of 28 million euros
According to the French media “L’Equipe”, Leicester City intends to sign the rising Moroccan midfielder Onassi, and has already negotiated with the Ligue 1 team Angers.
Onassi is one of the best players in this World Cup. He helped Morocco enter the semi-finals for an unprecedented time, and Morocco became the first African team to advance to the semi-finals of the World Cup and became the biggest dark horse. After the World Cup, the 22-year-old midfielder’s worth has also risen, and he has attracted the attention of countless teams.
Long before the start of the World Cup, Leicester City had been paying close attention to Onassi. It is reported that the Blue Fox sent a large number of scouts to France to investigate many young players. It is reported that Leicester City will send an offer of 28 million euros. But such an offer is expected to be difficult to impress Angers. The latter hopes to take advantage of Onasi’s skyrocketing value and sell at a satisfactory price in this winter window.
Angers asked for about 40 million euros for this player, and also stated that after the transfer agreement is reached, Onassi must stay in Angers on loan until the end of the season, so as to help Angers complete their relegation.
It is unclear whether Leicester City is willing to meet Angers’ asking price. The two Leicester City midfielders Tielemans and Maddison have attracted interest from Arsenal and Newcastle. It’s also possible that the future of both players could be tied to Onassi.
Onassi’s contract with Angers will only expire in 2026. He has attracted the interest of many European teams including Barcelona, Inter Milan, Juventus, Lyon and Paris Saint-Germain. Newcastle, Southampton, West Ham and Wolves are also on the radar.
