Sofyan Amrabat was at the center of Morocco’s unexpected success in the World Cup, and his performances brought the Fiorentina midfielder to the attention of several Premier League clubs.
Amrabat, 26, got his first taste of Serie A football when he was loaned from Club Brugge to Hellas Verona for the 2019-20 season, drawing the attention of Fiorentina, who poached him the following year.
The defensive midfielder has steadily increased his role at Fiorentina, making 10 starts and coming on as a substitute three times this season.
He played every minute of Morocco’s three group games, leading his team to an undefeated record (W2 D1) with clean sheets against Belgium and Croatia, and is now reportedly wanted by the English elite.
MAIN STORY – AMRABAT APPEARS AS A TARGET FOR LIVERPOOL AND TOTTENHAM
According to Sky Sports Germany, Liverpool believe Amrabat can solve midfield depth issues and he could be available in January for €30m.
An earlier report from La Repubblica said Tottenham were interested in a potential deal last January and his stunning tournament only added to their interest.
With a round of 16 blockbuster scheduled for Tuesday against Spain, another standout performance could keep Amrabat packing his bags for his upcoming move to England.
