Amrabat Departure Reportedly Starting to Lose Momentum

Sofyan Amrabat has been pursued by multiple big clubs this summer, but he’s still at Fiorentina late in the window. The Viola don’t want to wait too long to complete his sale to have time to find a proper replacement.

According to Corriere dello Sport (via OneFootball), the brass wishes to seal the deal by Friday, when the team will be back from Wien following the first leg of the European Conference League playoffs. At this stage, no suitor has laid the legwork to finalize the acquisition by the deadline, but a flash deal is always possible.

Amrabat didn’t feature in the opener, where Fiorentina romped Genoa. Manchester United appear to be focusing on Marco Verratti and other targets. Liverpool signed Wataru Endo from Stuttgart, although they could still add another midfielder. Juventus might stand pat due to the lack of exits.

The Viola have earmarked two names should the Moroccan international depart: Corinthians’ Faustino Vera and Brighton’s Steven Alzate. In the meantime, newcomer Arthur has shown well.

Our Take on Amrabat and Fiorentina

The buzz about his sale comes more from a reported previous promise and obviously the interest in his services than his contractual situation, as he’s potentially tied to them until 2025. Considering the caliber of the teams after him, it’s only fair for them to ask for a sizeable sum.
