After failed negotiations with Caicedo and Lavia, Liverpool wants to join the competition with Manchester United for Sofyan Amrabat, the midfielder from Fiorentina who stood out in the last World Cup while representing Morocco.
Despite the impending deal with Wataru Endo, the Japanese player who was with Stuttgart, the Reds are not satisfied and are eyeing another reinforcement for the midfield, especially after losing Fabinho and Henderson to Arab football in the last transfer window.
Sales at Manchester United are well underway, with Fred and Elanga easily departing. However, things have taken a different turn for Dean Henderson and Harry Maguire, who are unlikely to leave in this transfer window. As a result, the investment in Amrabat, which was a priority at the moment, has been disrupted.
Liverpool enters the fray against their rival
To make matters worse, reports suggest that Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool might once again consider pursuing the Moroccan midfielder in this transfer window due to the difficulty in finding available reinforcements for that position in the transfer market.
According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, the player would have said “yes” to Manchester United, but there is no agreement between the clubs, opening the possibility for Liverpool to intervene in the deal. Amrabat is uncertain about which proposal to accept at this moment.
The 26-year-old athlete is under contract with Fiorentina until June 30, 2024, thus he is free to sign a pre-contract with any team from January onwards. Given this situation, the Italian club is under pressure to negotiate Amrabat in this transfer window.
Amrabat was developed by Feyenoord in the Netherlands and joined Fiorentina in January 2020, amassing one goal and one assist in 107 games. For Morocco, the player was considered the best midfielder of the tournament by many experts, due to his performances that helped the country reach the semi-finals of the competition.
