Reports from Corriere dello Sport state that Jurgen Klopp has pushed for the team to acquire Sofyan Amrabat during the next January transfer window. Tottenham and Barcelona are also interested in the 26-year-old midfielder.
Liverpool needs help in the middle of the field badly, and Amrabat may be exactly what they’re looking for. The Moroccan international player was outstanding in the recent World Cup, as he led his team to the semifinals.
Amrabat has already established himself as a great player in Serie A, and he has more than enough talent to succeed in England. Liverpool’s midfield might benefit greatly from the 26-year-old’s presence and defensive cover in the second half of the season.
According to the source, Liverpool is offering around €40 million to get the player. The price that Fiorentina will want, though, is close to €50 million. To what extent Liverpool is willing to pay the asking amount to get his services remains to be seen. The Reds and Tottenham have emerged as the frontrunners to recruit the 26-year-old, according to recent sources.
The acquisition of Cody Gakpo from PSV Eindhoven is a smart move by Liverpool, as he will strengthen the team’s assault. They might make a serious run at UEFA Champions League qualifying with the addition of a top-tier midfielder.
Liverpool should strive for a top-four finish in the Premier League, and to do so, they will need to strengthen their team in order to compete with the other three finalists. At this point in his career, Amrabat is untouchable, and his arrival at Anfield would be a huge boost for the Reds. In addition, Klopp’s ideology seems like a good fit for his playing style and work ethic.
With Klopp’s assistance, the Moroccan’s game has the potential to take a quantum leap forward. The youngster will also likely find playing for Liverpool appealing and may be tempted to sign with them this month.
Whether or whether the two teams can reach an agreement on a transfer price before the month of January ends is still up in the air. Considering that Liverpool may not have $50 million lying around, they may have to settle. rivals Tottenham Hotspur of the Premier League is also said to be interested in signing the player. Amrabat would be a fantastic addition for Antonio Conte, who needs to bolster his squad’s depth.
In the next weeks, it will be exciting to watch whether the north London club can beat Liverpool to his signing. In contrast, Barcelona, a major club in Catalonia, is also monitoring Amrabat. They are parting ways with Sergio Busquets at the conclusion of the season, and the 26-year-old might be a good substitute. Barcelona, though, probably won’t be able to afford to spend €50 million to sign him.
