Report: Pep Guardiola and Graham Potter join Leeds and Arsenal in race for soon-to-be free agent at CL club

Eurosport claim Manchester City and Brighton are keen on signing Ajax star Nouassir Mazraoui – days after he was linked with Leeds and Arsenal.

Mazraoui, 24, has been excellent for Ajax since breaking into the senior side. The Morocco international has clocked up 118 outings for Ajax.

But his form this season has gone to another level. Perhaps putting himself in the shop window, Mazraoui has had a hand in seven goals in 16 games.

The right-back is out of contract at the end of the season, and ESPN report that Leeds and Arsenal are taking a look at the African defender.

However, Leeds and Arsenal have now been joined by two other Premier League rivals. Eurosport say Manchester City and Brighton are now keen.

Mazraoui future: Leeds, Arsenal, Manchester City or Brighton?

Graham Potter already has Tariq Lamptey returning to fitness. Unless he sells the ex-Chelsea man, Mazraoui would not start for the Seagulls.

Manchester City have Joao Cancelo and Kyle Walker and while a move to City would be tempting, he would probably be third choice.

Arsenal have numerous options at right-back – but Calum Chambers is expected to go, while Cedric Soares and Takehiro Tomiyasu are options.

Leeds, meanwhile, could do with Mazraoui. Luke Ayling is first choice, but he is now 30 and currently injured. Mazrouai would be a top addition.
