Tottenham Hotspur are still interested in signing World Cup star Sofyan Amrabat, according to 90min, after he was desperate to join them in January.
The midfielder has been one of Morocco’s best performers this World Cup, helping his country make it to the quarter-finals after a historic win against Spain.
Back in January, Fabrizio Romano claimed that the 26-year-old was ‘waiting‘ to join Spurs. The move never happened, and Spur signed Bentancur instead.
However, according to 90min, Spurs ‘remain keen’ on signing him after his ‘outstanding’ run at the world cup and are ‘monitoring his situation.’ The report also states that Liverpool are also ‘considering a move’ for him in the upcoming transfer window as Jurgen Klopp seeks to improve his midfield options.
Fiorentina do not seem to be keen on letting their midfielder go as the report states that they have not been entertaining any recent enquiries for him and are not planning on letting him leave in January either. It further says that the Serie A club were ‘willing to discuss’ loan bids for the midfielder during the winter transfer window last season, but are less willing this time around, and interested clubs would have to force their hand with a permanent offer instead.
After the recent speculation surrounding the Moroccan, his agent Mohammed Sinouh has come out and commented on it, keeping a move away from Fiorentina open. He said:
“Of course, I get a lot of phone calls for Sofyan.”
“The whole world has seen he’s the best holding midfielder of the World Cup.
“Sofyan is top professional, he’s focused on World Cup with Morocco”.
