Hellas Verona will ask for €20m for Sofyan Amrabat, with Tottenham and West Ham both known admirers of the midfielder.
Amrabat has impressed for Verona this season, having joined them on loan from Club Brugge in the summer.
The Italian side have an option to turn the move into a permanent one for €3.5m, which they are looking to activate before selling him on for a higher price.
Earlier this week we covered a report that they had raised their asking price for the 23-year-old, who would not be able to move until next summer, to €15m.
However, Voetbal International now claim Verona are ‘thinking of transfer fee of €20m’ for their prize asset.
Tottenham and West Ham are named as suitors once again, while Napoli, AC Milan, Lazio and Fiorentina are also said to be in the hunt.
Napoli are leading the race, but VI insist that reports in Italy suggesting they have an agreement in principle are ‘premature’.
That gives Tottenham and West Ham a chance to get their man, although whether they would be willing to pay €20m is unknown.
Given his price tag has steadily risen from €7m to €15m and now €20m, they may be smart to move before the price gets even higher.
