Liverpool could mount a hijack of Manchester United’s Sofyan Amrabat move next week, it has been claimed.
This comes courtesy of Sports View, with sources close to the publication suggesting the Reds are prepared to outbid their league rivals.
This could certainly gather pace if Fiorentina’s alleged deadline over an exit for their Moroccan international is accurate.
We’ve certainly expressed an interest in the World Cup star previously, though one might imagine the club has its preferences amid ongoing links with Crystal Palace’s Cheick Doucoure, Benfica’s Florentino Luis and Bayern Munich’s Ryan Gravenberch.
We would express some concern over the player’s defensive metrics, however, with the No.6 registering in the 37th, 40th and 17th percentiles for tackles, interceptions and blocks respectively, according to FBref.
The 26-year-old does appear strong in possession, registering in the 89th, 94th and 89th percentile for passes attempted, pass completion and progressive passes respectively.
A potentially strong fit for the controller profile Liverpool are keen on, though hardly the prime destroyer we’re said to be keen on.
