Bayern Munich have announced the signing of Morocco international Noussair Mazraoui from Ajax.
Mazraoui, 24, will join the Bundesliga champions on a free transfer from Ajax once his contract expires in June.
He has put pen to paper on a four-year deal through to 30 June 2026, and will link up with his new teammates for pre-season training in July.
“I had a good feeling right from the first talks with FC Bayern and I’m happy to be moving to one of the biggest clubs in Europe,” Mazraoui said.
“FC Bayern have just become German champions for the 10th time in a row and will also be among the contenders to win the Champions League again next year.”
“I chose this club because I can win the biggest titles here.”
Mazraoui will provide another option at right-back for Julian Nagelsmann, where he will compete with France international Benjamin Pavard for a spot in the team.
With Niklas Sule departing Bayern Munich for Borussia Dortmund on a free transfer this summer, the Mazraoui signing is the first reinforcement arriving at the club ahead of next season.
Mazraoui came through the youth academy at Ajax and won two Eredivisie titles and two KNVB Cups at the club.
He was also a key part of the team that reached the semifinals of the Champions League in 2019.
His departure from Ajax is part of a summer overhaul at the club with manager Erik ten Hag joining Manchester United and the club braced for a series of big-name departures.
