On Monday, a rather surprising article appeared claiming that Tottenham were taking an interest in Sofyan Amrabat.
It’s no secret that Antonio Conte would like a new midfielder in the January transfer window, with Weston McKennie the one linked early on, but it appears the Fiorentina midfielder is currently easier to get.
The player is currently at the Africa Cup of Nations with Morocco, but prior to that, he didn’t really fit in Vincenzo Italian’s plans, featuring ever so sporadically, making 11 appearances in Serie A, only one of which was a start.
That means a new club will be needed if he is to play more football during the second half of the campaign, and Spurs are ready to offer that to him.
Calciomercato bring the latest information they have gathered on the matter on Tuesday, explaining Fiorentina are ‘ready to send Sofyan Amrabat to other shores’.
Spending €20m on him two years ago, the fee paid by the Italians, according to the website, ‘will not be able to fully recovered’, mostly because ‘the value of the midfielder has inevitably dropped due to little use and poor performance’.
That being said, they claim Tottenham ‘are ready to put a good part on the plate, to be precise about three quarters of the entire fee paid by Fiorentina’, with the deal being a loan.
The headline explains the move for Amrabat from Spurs is ‘more and more towards the yes’ with ‘parties at work for a loan’, and the text further adds ‘the departure of Ndombélé from London will start the dominoes’.
It’s explained ‘we are talking about a potential investment of around €15m in case they want to trigger the option to buy’.
As for Fiorentina, ‘no better offers are on the horizon, and the wishes of all the parties involved seem to converge’.
