Al Ahly: No offers for Azarou, we want to keep him

Al Ahly director of football and assistant coach Mohamed Youssef has completely refuted claims that striker Walid Azarou could be on his way out of the club in January.
Azarou has been a key player for the Red Devils since his arrival in July 2017. The Morocco international scored 31 goals in 54 games for Al Ahly in all competitions.
Al Ahly were deprived off the 23-year-old striker’s services in the second leg of the CAF Champions League after he was suspended for two games over unsporting behaviour.
“There are no offers for Azarou. The claims about his departure in the upcoming January window or by the end of the season is categorically untrue,” Youssef said.
“Azarou’s contract runs for two years and a half and we want to keep him. He is one of the important players and it’s illogical to let go of the team’s pillars.”
