Napoli Poke Around Premier League-Linked Fiorentina Ace

Napoli has joined the list of suitors for Sofyan Amrabat, who’s likely to leave Fiorentina this summer after the club managed to hold on to him in January. However, the midfielder hasn’t generated as much interest as after his great World Cup. Large offers have struggled to come in so far, Tuttomercatoweb informs.

The parties have a gentleman’s agreement for the Moroccan to depart if a suitor tenders €25M. It hasn’t happened yet. He’s eager to do so having drawn interest from big clubs, especially in the past.

Napoli have earmarked Amrabat as they are looking for one or two new midfielders. They have missed out on one of their rumored targets as Lucas Tousart has officially joined Union Berlin. They had reportedly discussed a swap with Diego Demme, but he might stay despite his limited role.

West Ham have lodged the most concrete offer for now, but the ex-Verona stalwart isn’t so keen on the destination. Manchester United have shortlisted him, but he’s not one of their top priorities. The Viola could lower their request if the impasse lingers.

Our Take on Amrabat and Napoli

He’s more likely than not to switch teams, but the fit would be poor in this case. He might become a good box-to-box at some point, but he has thrived only in a two-man midfield so far. Plus, he’s rather pricey and not young enough for their standards.
