Achraf Lazaar

Position:
Defender
Date signed:
28th August 2016

A pacey left-back who can occupy a more advanced position, Moroccan international Achraf joined United from Italian side Palermo in summer 2016

Born in Casablanca, Achraf moved from Morocco to Italy with his parents aged 11 in 2003 and began his career at Varese - close to the country’s northern border with Switzerland.

After breaking into the first team in 2012 and establishing himself as one-to-watch in Italian football, he was loaned by Serie B table-toppers Palermo in 2014 and the Sicilian side quickly made the move permanent as they marched towards promotion back to Serie A.

After 76 appearances for the Rosanero, Achraf made the switch to St. James' Park and made his debut in a 2-0 EFL Cup win over Wolves at St. James’ Park.

Having spent time with Benevento and Sheffield Wednesday in the previous two seasons, Lazaar joined Italian side Cosenza Calcio on loan for the 2019/20 campaign.
