Liverpool are reportedly interested in a move for Sofyan Amrabat in January, with the offer to increase his current salary at Fiorentina.
According to Sport Witness via Corriere dello Sport, Liverpool are reportedly interested in a move for Sofyna Amrabat. Jurgen Klopp wants to bring players that improve the midfield at Merseyside. Amrabat emerges as an option through his performances for Morocco at the World Cup.
Liverpool’s need for midfielders is no secret, and it won’t surprise anyone if they end up signing a player in the position during the January window. Jurgen Klopp has struggled with his side due to inconsistencies caused by players in the positions and remains open to adding new faces.
Names like Jude Bellingham get mentioned consistently in media reports, but he may be one to look for during the summer window. As for now, Klopp needs immediate improvements and mainly a player combative enough to form a good screen ahead of the backline.
Fabinho and Jordan Henderson failed to inspire the team this season. Meanwhile, young guns such as Fabio Carvalho and Harvey Elliott are only learning the trade. A solid enforcer in the middle is imperative, especially after loan signing Arthur Melo was ruled out for the foreseeable future.
While Liverpool remains keen on new midfielders, Sofyan Amrabat’s name gets dragged into the conversation. The Moroccan is currently in Qatar, representing his country at the FIFA World Cup. The defensive midfielder plies his trade at Fiorentina and will have about 18 months left in January.
The report mentions Tottenham’s interest in the midfielder during the summer before they signed Yves Bissouma. It also suggests Liverpool could significantly improve his current salary at Fiorentina, which stands at €1.8 million per season.
There’s no mention of how much the Reds would offer for the 26-year-old midfielder, but they say it would considerably improve. Fiorentina are keen to keep hold of the player, on whom they can extend the contract for another season beyond 2024.
For now, these links are only rumours. However, the 26-year-old midfielder could prove a cheaper option to some of the other names they remain linked to.
