West Ham United face an impossible task with Liverpool lining up an imminent bid for Fiorentina ace Sofyan Amrabat.
That’s according to a report from Corriere Fiorentino who claim that sources ‘very close to the player’ believe an offer from Liverpool ‘could soon’ arrive.
And if that happens, David Moyes will be fighting a losing battle in my opinion.
The Scot wants to bring the 26-year-old Moroccan World Cup star to the London Stadium in the January transfer window.
With Liverpool chasing the Fiorentina midfielder though, it seems more likely that he will be Anfield bound…
West Ham face big Liverpool battle for Sofyan Amrabat
Corriere Fiorentino are claiming that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will lodge a bid for the Morocco international imminently.
That’s a real shame, because I would have absolutely loved to see him at the London Stadium. What a player he is!
Amrabat will cost around €50 million (£43 million) according to a report from La Repubblica
After his performances for Morocco during the World Cup out in Qatar, that seems like an absolute snip.
The 26-year-old is a powerful central midfielder, with energy and stamina in abundance.
He possesses everything needed to be a big success in the Premier League, what with his physical robustness and tenacity in the challenge.
£43 million would be an absolute bargain for the Fiorentina ace in my opinion.
Unfortunately for West Ham though, Liverpool seem to be in pole position to sign Sofyan Amrabat in the January transfer window.
And that will be very much their gain and our loss.
