Dutch champions Feyenoord boost their squad with Algeria national team midfielder Zerrouki

After progressing from the youth team, Algeria national team midfielder Ramiz Zerrouki is moving clubs for the first time in his senior career after completing a move from Dutch club FC Twente to Eredivisie champions Feyenoord this week. The 25-year-old born in Amsterdam joins the Rotterdam giants for a reported €8 million fee with an opportunity to play UEFA Champions League football next season. “I am happy and proud that the moment has finally arrived… Feyenoord is a big club in the Netherlands with great supporters,” Zerrouki remarked.

Zerrouki began his football career with the youth team of Ajax before moving to Twente in 2016 while still a youth player. He made his professional debut for Twente in the KNVB Cup during the 2019-20 season and progressed into a regular sight in the eleven for the club based in Enschede. With Twente, the deep-lying central midfielder helped the club qualify for the 2022-23 UEFA Europa Conference League where Twente fell to Italy’s Fiorentina in the final qualifying round. Twente qualified for the Conference League again this season as Zerrouki made 41 appearances in all competitions.

With the Algeria national team, Zerrouki made his debut for Les Verts against Zambia in the qualifying campaign for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations and played the full ninety minutes in a 3-1 defeat to Ivory Coast as Algeria were eliminated at the group stage. Zerrouki currently has 21 appearances for Algeria with one goal scored in a FIFA World Cup qualifying match against Djibouti.
