Liverpool could be set to seal January transfer ‘soon’ for World cup Break out star as the Reds proposal would test club’s resolve
According to reports, Liverpool will present Sofyan Amrabat with a bid shortly “that would make Fiorentina “falter” in their resolve to keep the midfielder.”
This information is provided by Corriere Fiorentino (via Sport Witness), which claims that the potential value of the deal might be close to €40 million (£35.3 million).
“Amrabat is earning ‘a lot of attention’ following his performances in Qatar and Liverpool are one of the clubs who are ‘about him’,” Sean Lunt wrote for the publication.
“That courtship is quickly picking up pace, and according to what has filtered through from ‘circles very close to the player’ they ‘could soon’ present a proposal ‘not far from €40m’.
“That is an offer which, if ever made official, would come very close to the figures that would make Fiorentina ‘falter’ in their resolve to keep the midfielder.”
The Merseysiders are understood to be especially keen on securing a new addition to the midfield department with Jurgen Klopp himself allegedly leading the charge.
Prior to making a large-scale approach for a middle-of-the-park recruit of the caliber of Jude Bellingham or Enzo Fernandez, a cost in the range of £30-40m would unquestionably suit the bill for Liverpool.
Of course, we must exercise some caution when making purchases following a World Cup, and supporters are right to point to players like Salif Diao and El-Hadji Diouf as illustrative cases in which tournament performance should be disregarded.
However, the Moroccan international was outstanding in Qatar, dominating elite competition like France, Spain, and Belgium, which should give at least some indication of the caliber we’d be bringing on board.
