Liverpool are set to intensify their interest in Moroccan star Sofyan Amrabat

According to Moroccan news outlet Lions de L’Atlas (h/t the Mirror), it is being claimed that the Reds have made a head start on Morocco and Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat, who is earning rave reviews for his performances at the FIFA World Cup.

Amrabat was one of the shining lights of the World Cup and rocked the tournament with his electric performances from the midfield.

Subsequently, there would be interest in the player who is currently plying his trade with Serie A outfit Fiorentina with his current contract set to expire in June 2024 (Transfermarkt).

Now as claimed by Lions de L’Atlas (h/t the Mirror), the 26-year-old Fiorentina star is also keen on the move after holding positive talks with manager Jurgen Klopp.

It does feel like one move which has the capacity to grow significantly over the coming days as the January transfer window comes closer. The hype around Nordin Amrabat’s brother Sofyan has increased this month.

He showed with the Morocco side at the World Cup that he has the capacity to play at the highest level and dominate games from the centre of the park.

Signing the Moroccan midfielder would also provide the much-needed competition for the holding midfielder place, which is currently only occupied by Fabinho.

Fabinho’s form this season has made it all the more necessary to sign a player in the same position as the competition would definitely require the Brazilian to step up more.

In conclusion, it does feel like a deal which resonates with the manner in which we have conducted transfers over the recent years and would go a long way in solving our urgent need for reinforcements in midfield.

And at his age, there is always the possibility of him getting better and honing his skills further here. On paper, this looks like a deal we would be wise to conclude, but it shouldn’t come at the cost of signing another world-class number six.
