Transfer News: Tottenham Hotspur urged to wait until summer 2023 to make Sofyan Amrabat move

Tottenham Hotspur have been warned by Morocco football journalist Amine El Amri they will have to wait till next summer to sign Florentina and Morocco international Sofyan Amrabat.

Spurs have been interested in the defensive midfielder for some time now, with rivals Liverpool also joining the race. The 26-year-old has been enjoying a stellar World Cup so far with Morocco, helping his side reach an unlikely semi-final.

However, football journalist Amri while speaking to talkSPORT (h/t Express) has claimed that the Serie A side is in no rush to cash in on the midfielder and interested parties could have to wait till next summer.

“I think there’s a big chance that he might go there [the Premier League]. But everybody will have to wait until the summer because Fiorentina don’t seem to want to sell in the next couple of weeks.”

“Sofyan Amrabat is a great footballer in addition to being a raging bull. I’m trying to be as objective as I can but I think he’s been the best midfielder in this World Cup.”

Amrabat sees his contract at Florentina expire in 2024 although the club has the option to extend it by another year. Therefore, it is not surprising to see the Serie A side remain so calm as they know they have a good time on their hands to set a price.

Antonio Conte has found success with Rodrigo Bentancur and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the middle of the park. Other midfielders like Yves Bissouma and Oliver Skipp are yet to provide tough competition to the regular duo.

It is really surprising to see Conte show interest in a defensive midfielder, considering Bentancur is the only midfielder we have capable of attacking throughout the game.

The Moroccan international has been a regular for the Serie A side this season, playing in 20 games for them in all competitions. Should he sign for us, he is likely to compete with Hojbjerg for a place in the starting eleven.

It remains to be seen if Spurs make any approach for the midfielder in the winter transfer window. Amrabat meanwhile will hope to guide his country to their first World Cup final as they prepare to take on France this Wednesday (December 14).
