“I spoke to his agent”- Romano offers update on 26-year-old Tottenham target shining at World Cup

Fabrizio Romano reveals what he has heard from Tottenham Hotspur target Sofyan Amrabat’s agent

Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur target Sofyan Amrabat has been drawing added interest after his displays with Morocco at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Corriere dello Sport (h/t Express) recently claimed that Liverpool were also interested in the Spurs target playing his club football at Fiorentina. The 26-year-old has added to his reputation in Qatar.

He has played every single minute of the Atlas Lions’ four FIFA World Cup games so far this time around. Amrabat is also a regular fixture in manager Vincenzo Italiano’s Fiorentina starting XI.

He has a little over 18 months left on his contract (Transfermarkt) and could be on the move soon if Romano’s comments are to be believed. Writing exclusively in his column on CaughtOffside, the transfer expert wrote:

“I spoke to his agent Mohammed Sinouh today and he told me that there are many calls but no advanced negotiations. Sofyan only wants to focus on the World Cup and Fiorentina will try to keep him until June.”

He also shed light on Spurs’ interest in signing Amrabat in January – the same transfer window where we brought in Rodrigo Bentancur from Juventus. Romano said:

“Tottenham were close to signing him last January then Fiorentina made the deal collapse, he’s always been in the list of Antonio Conte since he was Inter Milan manager.”

Amrabat, 26, would perhaps want regular playing time wherever he goes. After all, he is used to that with Morocco and La Viola. Can Spurs provide that?

He’d have to do extremely well to displace either Bentancur or Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from the starting XI. The other option could be playing three in midfield as we have done at times this season, but that takes away one attacker from manager Antonio Conte’s formation.
