Julian Nagelsmann has confirmed that Bayern Munich are about to complete the signing of Noussair Mazraoui from Ajax on a free transfer.

When asked about the potential deal, he said through Goal: ‘With Mazraoui, we are in the final stretch. There are still final details that need to be clarified.

‘If it works, then we have a very good player that we are very happy about. I didn’t feel like we had to do much convincing.

“The first conversation was that he was very on, in terms of form, and that he just wanted to play for Bayern. The thing was bagged relatively quickly. That’s the kind of players and conversations we need, players who are hungry and pushing other players.’

Mazraoui has scored five times in 34 appearances this campaign and has been influential in helping Ajax win the Eredivisie title.

The 24-year-old has been with the Dutch team since he was just eight years old and has played 137 times, scoring 10 goals.

Earlier in the week, Bayern boss Hasan Salihamidzic expressed his satisfaction at having achieved the deal.

Salihamidzic said: ‘He is a player who has performed very well in recent years. He is someone who brings something refreshing. We know how difficult the right-back market is.”

‘He is the type of player that all of Europe wanted. We are very happy that he has decided to join us in the next few years. There are still some things to complete. But he is a player who will help us and make our team stronger.”
