En Avant Guingamp announced on Monday evening the signing of striker Amine El Ouazzani from Bourg-en-Bresse. Here is what you need to know about the young Franco-Moroccan.
A child from Isère
Amine El Ouazzani was born on July 15, 2001 in Grenoble. As a child, he was very talented and quickly joined the ranks of Grenoble Foot 38. He then played in the young teams and was already showing his talents in front of goal. But after several years with the blue and white, the striker is finally not retained by the club. He will therefore never have worn the jersey of the first team, a regret for him.
He started in Bourg-en-Bresse
Free of any contract, the Rhônalpin is committed in 2019 with Bourg-en-Bresse, a club playing in National. First holder among young people, he was then promoted with the reserve. And after the arrival of Alain Pochat at the head of the first team, Amine El Ouazzani joins the professional group for the first time. Promising, the Franco-Moroccan makes successful entries into the game.
Revelation in National
After proving himself, the striker becomes indisputable holder during the 2021-2022 season. Despite multiple injuries, he is decisive in the league with 6 goals and 4 assists in the space of 20 games. The 21-year-old is then observed by Nîmes and Clermont during the summer, but he remains in Bourg-en-Bresse.
Amine El Ouazzani engages with the EAG
The Costa Rican club, which had been looking for a striker for several months, finally set its sights on the native of Grenoble. Amine El Ouazzani will obviously have the mission to relaunch an attack in lack of confidence. For this, he will be able to rely in particular on his size and his big shot.
