The Morocco international may be available for a much lower price when the transfer window opens, with Mazraoui is out of contract in 2022.

Arsenal submit £30m-plus offer for Norwich City star Emiliano Buendia
Arsenal have presented a £30million-plus offer for Norwich City player Emiliano Buendia, according to reports.
The Argentinian midfielder has surfaced as one of Mikel Arteta’s chief transfer targets this summer following another remarkable campaign at Carrow Road.
The Sun state both Arsenal and Villa have made £30m-plus offers for Buendia, but the transfer scrap is far from over as Norwich prize him at £40m.
The Gunners face tough competition from Villa, however, with Dean Smith also keen to reinforce his squad following a promising campaign in which his team finished 11th.
Former England star Danny Mills is a huge supporter of Buendia and reckons he should choose Aston Villa over Arsenal.
“You want to play, that’s the most important thing,’ he told Football Insider. “Villa are probably looking at it as a replacement for Ross Barkley.
“Jack Grealish could even move on at some point. With Arsenal, it’s a little bit scattergun. We’re not really sure what’s going on with them at the moment.
“We don’t know what direction they’re heading in, what style of play they’re going to play. There’s a lot of unanswered questions.
“On the face of it in terms of stability Arsenal were back in the day a bigger club and had better prospects. But actually, you need stability and you want to play and actually, that would be Villa.”
Arsenal lead the race to sighn 21 years old Sambi Lokonga.
Sambi Lokonga could be on the move this summer, with Arsenal alleged to have shown the greatest enthusiasm in his capture.

“I will not go to a club which is inferior to Anderlecht, nor to a club of the same level. I will only leave Anderlecht if all the ingredients are there. Yes, I feel ready to take a step forward and to rub shoulders with great players. But everything will depend on the proposals that will be made during this summer.”
Arsenal are presumed to add to their midfield ranks in the close-season, with Dani Ceballos‘s return to Real Madrid at the end of his loan deal having left a gap in the playing squad, and Lokonga could well be allowed to fill that hole, with DHNet naming Arsenal as the most engaged in his signature at present.

Luiz delivered an heartfelt speech to his team-mates before their last game of the Premier League season.
“If, in some moments, I did something bad with you guys, sorry, but it was always my intention to give my best for you guys,” Luiz said.
“It was always my intention to help you guys. I think you understood a bit that I am a collective person, so my happiness is to see the others happy. So I try my best.”
Australian keeper Ryan made three appearances during his loan spell but will now return to Brighton.
