Club careerEdit

Born in Brussels, Azzaoui started playing football with R.S.C. Anderlecht.[2][3] In 2015, he joined VfL Wolfsburg from Tottenham Hotspur for a transfer fee of reportedly €500,000 and made his Bundesliga debut on 21 November 2015 against Werder Bremen. He substituted Daniel Caligiuri after 76 minutes in a 6–0 home win.[4]

In early August 2017, Azzaoui was transferred to Dutch Eredivisie club Willem II for a season-long loan.[5] After his return to Wolfsburg, Azzaoui injured his knee and will likely be out for the whole 2018/19 season.[6]

He is of Moroccan ancestry and plays for the Belgium U17 team.[3]
