And it would appear that Tottenham might be willing to match that investment if Angers lower their asking price from £35m. They have cooled their interest in his compatriot Amrabat after it emerged Fiorentina wanted around £50m for the midfielder.
Angers have a strong bargaining position after landing Ounahi from French third tier outfit US Avranches in 2021. He signed a five-year contract, giving the club the chance to land a huge profit on the player who cost a nominal fee only 18 months ago.
But it seems unlikely they will stand in his way to depart the Raymond Kopa Stadium if one of Leicester, Napoli or Tottenham decide to submit an offer that is too good to turn down.
