AZ loses flavor maker Oussama Idrissi to Sevilla in the last days of this transfer period. According to it AD in WE the Alkmaarders have reached an agreement with the Spaniards on a transfer fee of 12 million euros (excluding bonuses).
The 24-year-old Idrissi is still under contract with AZ until mid-2022. The attacker did not play in the Eredivisie this season due to an injury to an abdominal muscle. He did participate in the matches against Viktoria Plzen (3-1 win) and Dynamo Kiev (2-0 loss) in the preliminary round of the Champions League.
