Fiorentina Trying to Repel English Suitors for Amrabat

Sofyan Amrabat is putting on a show in the World Cup and has been thriving this season at Fiorentina. He’s starting to draw interest from major outfits, but Fiorentina have no intention of partying way with him anytime soon, La Repubblica informs.

Morocco coach Hoalid Regragui heaped praise on the midfielder.

“I expect him to transfer to one of the best European clubs after this tournament.”

His brother Nordin doubled down.

“I think that the top teams that overlooked him so far are stunned. They will line up to get him now.”

Viola director Daniele Pradè tried to shut the door.

“We are very happy with Amrabat and we will hold onto him.”

According to the publication, Fiorentina are in a comfortable spot because he’s technically under contract with them until 2025 thanks to an option. But the whispers, especially coming from the Premier League, are starting to get loud.

Liverpool reportedly reached out to his agency CAA Stellar to inquire, and Tottenham, which already targeted him in the past, are keen as well. The Moroccan ace would like to play in the Champions League. The Gigliati plot to offer him a new deal, doubling his wages, as he currently makes €1.8M per year. However, they are aware they can’t match the proposals from elite sides, nor can they give him the opportunity to star in the big-eared cup.

Our Take on Amrabat

It took him a while to adjust to Vincenzo Italiano’s scheme, as he had been underwhelming for a few months. He’s been unleashed with the recent tweak from 4-3-3 to 4-2-3-1, as he’s a beast in a two-man midfield. He won’t stay in Florence for long if he carries on at this level.
