Liverpool Threaten Manchester United in Amrabat Transfer Race

While Manchester United are waiting for the right moment to grab Sofyan Amrabat from Fiorentina, they are in a position to be beaten outright by hardcore rivals Liverpool. The Moroccan, who is also on the radars of Juventus and Al-Ahli, remains rooted to the Viola but is ready to move if and when the right offer arrives.

As per Dutch outlet AD, Liverpool have strongly entered the race for Amrabat, who is stuck in limbo surrounding his future. The Reds are currently negotiating with the player’s intermediaries, but a decision is yet to be made, most significantly by the player.

Manchester United were boosted at the start of the month as Amrabat was omitted by Vincenzo Italiano for Fiorentina’s pre-season friendlies. However, Liverpool are now bent upon signing the 26-year-old central powerhouse, with Jurgen Klopp reportedly a fan of the Morocco international.

Liverpool, who recently lost out to London rivals Chelsea in the race for Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia, are in need of onboarding new midfielders following the exits of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho.

Our Take on Amrabat and Liverpool

The 2022 World Cup star could play a starring role at any club in the Premier League. It is United that will rue their chances if Liverpool beat them to Amrabat, having long been leading the saga. However, the prospect of Champions League football, coupled with the chance to work under former boss Erik Ten Hag, still places the Red Devils ahead of the pack.
