Liverpool Sets Sights on Morocco’s Sofyan Amrabat

FC Barcelona has also been showing interest in the Moroccan midfielder ahead of the summer transfer window.

Rabat – In addition to FC Barcelona, Premier League club Liverpool is also interested in signing Moroccan footballer Sofyan Amrabat from ACF Fiorentina.

Sports news outlet Fichajes said that shortcomings in Liverpool’s midfield could lead German coach Jurgen Klopp to target players like Amrabat.

“According to the latest reports from England, the German coach has requested the signing of the African player from Fiorentina to strengthen his midfield for next season,” Fichajes’ reported.

Liverpool is reportedly willing to pay 40 million euros for the Atlas Lion.

Amrabat was one of the most important players during Morocco’s fairytale run at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, with his contributions to the midfield’s defensive solidity.

Fichajes stressed that the Moroccan earned “massive” interest from top European teams following his eye-catching performances during the World Cup in Qatar.

“Barcelona [is] also behind the African player,” the outlet said, recalling that the Spanish club is already preparing an offer to secure a deal with Amrabat.

Several reports, however, see Amrabat’s departure from Fiorentina as undecided, despite the player’s agent stating earlier this year that the club is “welcoming a move” in the summer.

Sports news website FCBN recalled  Fiorentina’s decision to block Amrabat’s exit in the January transfer window.

The report stressed that the Italian club is seeking to convince the Atlas Lion to renew his agreement with the club before the summer to be able to negotiate a higher price for his transfer.

Amrabat is reportedly convinced, however, to test his luck in another club and not delay his exit any further, according to FCBN.

In addition to Barcelona and Liverpool, Atletico Madrid is also reportedly interested in the Atlas Lion.
