Achraf Lazaar admits MLS clubs want him

Lazaar told Gazzamercato: "I want to be at the World Cup with Morocco. Representing my country is the greatest satisfaction and I want to be at the World Cup with Morocco, as that would be a dream. Now I’ll do everything I can to earn my chance. Unfortunately, I’ve been pushed out of the Benevento squad. Coming here was a bad decision and I wouldn’t do it again, even if I got to know the extraordinary President Vigorito. I still respect him, despite the decision they have made. I have nothing against Coach Roberto De Zerbi, as he made his choices. I belong to Newcastle and must think about what is best for my career and right now I need playing time.

"I can confirm that there are three clubs who are interested in MLS, but I prefer to respect those clubs and not name the ones who contacted me. It’s not easy purely in terms of red tape to go to America, but with my new agent Roberto De Fanti we are seeking the best solution. I really miss the Morocco squad, as I played during the qualifiers for the World Cup and will do everything to get my place in the side. I haven’t been the usual Lazaar in recent months, but I have matured a great deal. I was a kid when I first became known and now I am a man."
