Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat is on the radar of Premier League giants Liverpool, who can sign their key target for €40 million.
According to a report from Gazzetta dello Sport, as relayed by Sport Witness, Liverpool will have to fork out €40 million for Sofyan Amrabat if they want to sign him when the transfer window reopens in January.
Amrabat excelled in the recently concluded 2022 FIFA World Cup, helping Morocco reach the semi-finals of the tournament. The Atlas Lions surpassed all expectations in Qatar, and Amrabat’s displays caught the attention of the top clubs, including Liverpool.
Liverpool could use a player like him during the second half of the season. And it will be interesting to see if they can agree on a deal with Fiorentina. It seems that they will have to agree to pay the €40 million asking price in order for any move to go through.
Amrabat will add defensive cover and work rate to the Liverpool midfield if the transfer goes through. The 26-year-old is in peak form, and he could be a key player for the Reds during the second half of the season.
Liverpool will have to improve a lot to finish in the top four, and a signing like Amrabat could galvanise the squad. The Fiorentina midfielder is likely to partner Thiago Alcantara and Fabinho if he joins Liverpool.
He would be an upgrade on players like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and James Milner. Furthermore, club captain Jordan Henderson is no spring chicken, and Amrabat is likely to be a better option than him as well.
Liverpool certainly have the means to pay the reported €40m asking price for the World Cup star. Also, Amrabat has age on his side and he could justify the outlay. Recent reports have also suggested that the 26-year-old wants to join Liverpool.

Fiorentina will not want to lose him in an ideal world. But the player has clearly outgrown the Italian outfit and deserves to play for a big club. Liverpool could provide him with the platform he needs right now. Working with Klopp could help the player improve further and take his game to a whole new level. Meanwhile, Liverpool are thought to be keen on the likes of Enzo Fernandez and Jude Bellingham as well.
