Liverpool are now eyeing a move for Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat, after pulling out of the race for Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham.
That’s according to 90min, who have shared Jurgen Klopp’s transfer wish-list for the summer.
While the usual candidates are mentioned (the likes of Mason Mount and Moises Caicedo), the Reds are now considering another push to sign Amrabat.
The Morocco international was linked with a move to Anfield prior to and during the World Cup.
It is reported that Jurgen Klopp held several meetings with the 26-year-old’s agent, but a transfer failed to come to fruition in January.
Liverpool could revisit this possibility in the summer.
Having pulled out of the race to land Bellingham, Liverpool theoretically have an extra £130m to put towards alternative midfield signings.
With Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain leaving at the end of the season, the Reds need at least three new additions in the middle of the park.
Rumoured to cost around £40m, Amrabat would certainly be a more budget option Klopp could opt to go for.
Having excelled at the World Cup, the Moroccan received international attention. The 26-year-old was recognised as one of the players of the tournament, and his name began to engulf transfer talk.
Former Spain manager Luis Enrique even described his performances as ‘exceptional’.
Therefore, having shown he can perform on football’s biggest stage, Amrabat could be a good option for Liverpool this summer.
