According to a report from Italian media outlet TuttoMercatoWeb, alleged West Ham and Tottenham target Sofyan Amrabat could be available for just €15 million (£12.7 million) in January.

Italian publication Calcio Mercato claimed last month that both the Hammers and Spurs want to sign the Morocco international in January.

The powerful box-to-box midfielder seems to be ideally suited to the Premier League, what with his tenacious and uncompromising playing style.

He has impressed for Hellas Verona this season with some really gritty displays. Although he is still yet to register either a goal or an assist in 15 appearances.

 

Amrabat would certainly add some steel to West Ham’s meek midfield, however.

And TMW claims that the Hammers could snap the 23-year-old up for just £12.7 million in January.

That’s incredibly good value for a player with Amrabat’s quality. He is at an age where he will undoubtedly go on and improve even further still.

The Moroccan has all of the qualities that the east London outfit currently lack. And for just £12.7 million, he would be well worth a punt for the Hammers.

Whether West Ham can beat Tottenham to his signature, however, remains to be seen.
