An inch closer to Sofyan Amrabat and Liverpool link-ups
Due to Sofyan Amrabat’s outstanding World Cup performances for Morocco, various clubs, including Liverpool, have taken notice. Jürgen Klopp allegedly spoke with the 26-year-team old’s on December 7 to explore a potential trade. This is stated in the most recent article from the same source that talks about Liverpool’s interest in the player.
There is now claims that the Reds watched Amrabat in Qatar with keen interest after their management designated him as a “priority” target along with Jude Bellingham of Borussia Dortmund. Klopp reportedly intends to communicate with the player’s representation once more after having previously done so.
What you need to know
Amrabat is eager to leave Fiorentina and join the Premier League, where in addition to the Merseyside club, other English teams are vying for his services. The midfielder now has a “preference” for Liverpool, but nothing is set in stone.
The Moroccan’s Fiorentina team is attempting to extend his contract. They have also “not closed” the door to his sale in January, and a €40 million bid “should be adequate” in the interim. According to Calciomercato, Fiorentina wants to tie Amrabat into a new contract despite Liverpool and other teams showing interest. They will meet with his agents to discuss this before the month is through.
Fans are questioning this decision as they are unsure if Amrabat will fit in the Liverpool style. Now, Jurgen Klopp believes he will. And in Jurgen, every scouser believes. It would be great to see Amrabat brings his commitment and sheer determination to the Liverpool squad as he did with his national team. Their defense was one of the many things in the World Cup that was a delight to watch. And Amrabat led that defense all the way to the semis.
