Tottenham Hotspur are leading the race to sign 26-year-old Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat ahead of next season.

According to Calciomercato, Tottenham Hotspur are leading the race to sign Sofyan Amrabat. The 26-year-old has been doing wonders for Italian club Fiorentina of late and has been on the radar of multiple clubs across Europe. Antonio Conte’s men are all set to push for his signatures in the summer.

Amrabat was a star for Morocco at the FIFA World Cup 2022. He was all over the pitch and impressed one and all with his performances. The 26-year-old featured in all of his nation’s matches at the global event. And was one of the main reasons they became the first African nation to feature in the World Cup semi-finals.

His heroics during the World Cup caught the eyes of some of the biggest clubs across Europe. And, quite a few of them were interested in signing him during the winter window. But, they failed to get the deal over the line as Fiorentina were not ready to lose out on their star mid-season.

The 26-year-old’s contract at the club ends in the summer of 2024. With just over a year left in his contract and a new deal not in sight, he is expected to depart in a few months’ time. While there is an option to extend his ongoing contract by 12 months, there are no updates regarding that as of now. And, with the amount of interest in him, they can surely get a great deal this summer.

Amrabat is amongst the best defensive midfielders in Italy. And, he has had a sensational season so far. The 26-year-old has featured in 36 matches for Fiorentina and he has done a great job in each of the outings.

Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur are keen on having him in their ranks. Spurs wanted to sign him ahead of the ongoing season but they decided to push for Rodrigo Bentancur at the very last moment. However, they have reignited their interest in the Moroccan international.

Antonio Conte’s team want to increase the depth of their midfield. They want to sign a new midfielder who is more of a box-to-box player and has great defensive awareness. Spurs are confident that Sofyan Amrabat could be a great addition to their ranks. And, they are willing to splash the cash to acquire his services.

However, it won’t be that easy a task for Spurs given the interest of Barcelona in his services. The Catalan giants were interested in him during the January transfer window. And, Xavi’s team are expected to make moves for him in the summer.
