Liverpool will need to fork out €30 million to sign Moroccan defensive midfielder Sofyan Amrabat from Serie A club Fiorentina.

According to German journalist Florian Plettenburg, Sofyan Amrabat is on Liverpool’s radar. And the Premier League giants will have to pay a fee of more than €30 million to secure the services of the 26-year-old Moroccan international.

The midfielder has been a key player for Serie A club Fiorentina this season, and he has done well at the World Cup with Morocco as well. It will be interesting to see if Liverpool are willing to break the bank to sign Amrabat in the January transfer window. The 26-year-old is likely to command wages of between €3 million and €4 million per season as well.

It is no secret that Liverpool will have to improve their midfield options, and Amrabat could prove to be a quality addition. The 26-year-old is at the peak of his powers right now, and he could make an immediate impact at Anfield.

Liverpool’s midfield has been plagued with injuries this season, and key players like Naby Keita and Thiago Alcantara have not been available consistently. Furthermore, experienced heads like Jordan Henderson and James Milner are past their peak and will need to be replaced soon.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Keita are expected to move on when their contracts expire in the summer. So Klopp will need to bring in more than just one midfielder this summer. Amrabat has thus emerged as a viable target for Liverpool.

Liverpool have been linked with players like Jude Bellingham and Moises Caicedo as well. The reported €30 million asking price for Amrabat should be affordable for a club with Liverpool’s resources. And it remains to be seen how the situation develops.

Florian Plettenberg claims that a number of Premier League clubs are looking to sign the 26-year-old Moroccan international. So it remains to be seen whether Liverpool can fend off the competition and secure his services.

The opportunity to move to Anfield would be a step up in the player’s career, and he is likely to be attracted to the idea of joining Liverpool. The Reds will be hoping to challenge for major trophies once again, and Klopp needs to sort out his midfield problems in order to do that. But recent reports have claimed that Fiorentina will block a move for Amrabat, so he might end up remaining in Serie A.
