Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano stated that Liverpool have informed Fiorentina that they have no plans to sign Sofyan Amrabat this summer.
Speaking on the Kick, the Italian suggested that Reds are currently not taking interest in acquiring Amrabat. Liverpool have monitored a number of midfielders in this transfer window after missing out on both Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia.
The Moroccan international has been under various Premier League club’s radar since his brilliant display at the FIFA World Cup 2022. Jurgen Klopp’s side has been monitoring since the last January transfer window.
Manchester United has been also monitoring Amrabat as Eric Ten Hag is keen to sign him this summer. However with Romano’s update, Red Devils are now in prime position to sign him as Liverpool opt out of the race.
The journalist claims Liverpool have informed the Italian outfit that they’re not willing to sign Amrabat this summer.
Romano said :
“From what I heard, Liverpool had a conversation on the player’s and club’s side for Sofyan Amrabat, It was last week.
“But then, they called after 24 hours.
“We are no longer interested, we’re not going to make any bid or start any concrete negotiations’.
“So, Amrabat and Liverpool was never something true or something concrete.
“It was just a request of information and nothing else.”
To be frankly speaking, Liverpool were not that serious about Sofyan Amrabat as his market value inflated after stellar performance in Qatar. After Wataru Endo’s addition, Reds currently looking for a midfielder of different profile.
There is still room for one more midfielder in Liverpool’s squad for the current campaign.
