Amrabat Primed to Depart in the Summer, Claims Agent

Sofyan Amrabat was targeted by a few top clubs after shining in Qatar, but Fiorentina managed to reel him in. However, that came with the promise of a summer departure, according to his agent Mohamed Sinouh, as he revealed to Kora Plus (via Goal).

“We received multiple offers during the winter. Manchester United were among the bidders, but the deal didn’t go through. The Viola president categorically refused to negotiate his departure because he was a centerpiece of the team, even more so after his performances during the World Cup.”

Barcelona was hot on the trail of Amrabat as well, but Fiorentina rebuffed them. However, the situation should change in the next window, and the Serie A side should be more lenient.

“We have no offers on the table just yet, but we received the green light to transfer in the summer. That’s what the chairman promised us after turning down every proposal.”

The 26-year-old joined in a €20M move from Verona in 2020.

Our Take on Fiorentina and Amrabat

It’d be nice if the Gigliati managed to hold on to one of their top players for a few years every once in a while, but their business model leans on turning in big profits after all, and the Moroccan ace is the next in line. Although, while he has been a steady hand this season, he has rarely fared as spectacularly as with his national team during his time with the Viola, even though the coach tweaked his scheme to better accommodate him.
