He had emerged as a transfer target for a number of Ligue 1 clubs, namely Dijon and Montpellier HSC, but Al Ahly rejected all offers for him as he is considered as a key player at the club.

However, according to Saudi website, Al Nassr have made an approach for Walid Azarou as they seek to bring in a new striker before the end of January. The website also revealed that the Saudi side have contacted Al Ahly regarding a potential deal for the 22-year-old.

Azarou is currently Al Ahly’s top goalscorer with 11 goals and is third on the Egyptian Premier League’s top scorers list, only behind Misr El-Makkasa’s John Antwi and Omar El-Said of Entag El Harby.
