Nacer Barazite played in the NEC youth academy before moving to English giants Arsenal in 2006. Normally playing at the reserves he made his Arsenal first appearance in the League Cup match against Sheffield United in November 2007.

To get more playtime at high-level, both teams agreed a loan deal to Derby County for the 2008-09 season.

Starting from the 2009-10 season, Barazite will play the rest of the year on loan at his home town club Vitesse Arnhem. At the end of December there were rumours about a return to England, but he started the training in Arnhem in January 2011. At the end of January 2011 the Dutch club allowed the player to go on trial at Austria Wien. Barazite was not in the Arnhem plans anymore. After the successful period he signed a 2,5 year contract at the Austrian club. Arsenal was not demanding a fee for the rest of the contract until June 2011. Barazite has not played any Premiership match for the London based club.

At the end of January 2012, Holland U21 international Barazite signed a 4,5 year contract at French L2 club AS Monaco for a fee around the 3 million euro.

During mid-season 2012-13 he was loaned out for the rest of the season to his former club in Austria because of minimal playing opportunities in France. In summer 2013 he returned to France recovering from injury problems.

In summer 2014 he returned home, fully recovered from his injury. He played a total of 12 matches for Monaco. Barazite signed a 3-year contract at FC Utrecht. Although good play in Utrecht he decided not to extend his contract in June 2017. He went on a free transfer to Turkey to sign a 3-year contract at Yeni Malatyaspor.
