Fiorentina Confident About Amrabat Staying in January

Sofyan Amrabat is drawing plenty of attention thanks to his stellar performances in the World Cup, but Fiorentina are in the driver’s seat concerning his future. They have an option to extend his contract until 2025, TuttoSport informs.

They haven’t gotten huge offers so far. The midfielder is likely to finish the season with the Viola. The club plans to activate the clause to have more leverage. However, the brass and the player will decide his future together at the end of the season.

Should Amrabat leave for a sizeable bid, Fiorentina would be ready to re-invest the money in a pair of Verona midfielders, Adrien Tameze and Ivan Ilic. It’s the same club from which they originally acquired the Moroccan staple.

Jurgen Klopp appeared to take Liverpool, one of the keenest clubs, out of the running in a recent presser (via Reuters).

“I don’t want to disappoint but we signed an outstanding player like Cody Gakpo, and the next thing you can read is, ‘Who next?’. We cannot play like Monopoly. We never did. It’s a big part of my philosophy, working full of faith and trust with the players we have and not constantly questioning them by telling them that we need another one in their position.”

Our Take on Fiorentina and Amrabat

It’s an interesting spot to be in, especially considering how long they waited for him to bloom. Cashing in on a center-piece would be nothing new for them, and this would be the best moment to do it. Even if he keeps up his form, he’ll have less exposure in the next few months. If he does stay, it’d better be for a few more years and not to look for a profit in the summer.
