Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing a move for Morocco midfielder Sofyan Amrabat and Antonio Conte ‘especially’ wants to sign him, according to reports.
The Lowdown: Amrabat wanted to join…
Spurs links to the Fiorentina star are nothing new with reliable reports indicating they held a real interest in him last January.
What’s more, the 26-year-old, who is currently starring at the 2022 World Cup, once ‘only‘ wanted to join the north Londoners according to Romano’s past information.
The Latest: Conte eyeing Spurs move…
According to Foot Mercato, Spurs are eyeing a move for Amrabat heading into the 2023 winter transfer window, led by their manager.
Expanding on these links, FM writer Hanif Ben Berkane has claimed on Twitter that Conte ‘especially’ wants to sign the African star.
However, Spurs are not alone in their interest, with Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp also holding a serious interest in Amrabat.
The Verdict: Make the move?
The Serie A midfield enforcer has seriously impressed in Qatar and has been a integral part of Morocco’s very impressive run to the competition’s quarter-final stage.
Liverpool Echo writer Charlotte Coates, being impressed by Amrabat’s performance against Spain in the Last 16, called him a ‘monster in the middle‘ – leaving little wonder he is currently attracting real interest.
If Spurs can win the race for Amrabat, Conte may add another capable figurehead to his ranks alongside the likes of Rodrigo Bentancur and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
