Liverpool must fork out £34m to land 26-year-old African World Cup hero



Liverpool discover price-tag for Fiorentina star Sofyan Amrabat

As claimed by Spanish news outlet Relevo (h/t Liverpool Echo), the Reds now know the price of one of their transfer targets for the upcoming January transfer window, Moroccan international Sofyan Amrabat of Fiorentina.

The 26-year-old is one of the most important reasons why Morocco has gone so deep and far into the World Cup, and his performances have caught the attention of Europe’s elite clubs including Tottenham Hotspur.

Jurgen Klopp is apparently a huge fan of the player and the recruitment team at the AXA stands amazed and beyond by the player’s outing in this edition of the World Cup. Moreover, they believe that he could be a good addition to Liverpool’s squad.

The said report also claims that Fiorentina value their player a lot and the side has reserved a price of £34m to secure the services of the player from the Serie A outfit. Compared to other Liverpool transfer targets, this amount is something that is considerably low, and much more realistic.

With the recent history of Liverpool with respect to the frequency of injuries, a young, talented midfielder at the prime of his playing days will no doubt be a class signing if the Reds decide to go ahead with it.

Amrabat can back Fabinho up, and also give him much-needed competition given the Brazilian’s on-and-off form. Moreover, his versatility to play advanced roles is also a luxury the Reds could enjoy.
