Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly looking to reignite their transfer interest in Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat.
The Lowdown: Spurs’ previous interest in Amrabat
It was reported earlier this year that the Lilywhites were keen to sign the midfielder during the 2022 summer transfer window after having their eyes on him in January.
It now appears that Antonio Conte’s side could look to try again and sign him during the upcoming January transfer window.
The Latest: Spurs to reignite interest in Amrabat
According to a recent report from Italian outlet La Repubblica (via Viola News), the north London club are set to reignite their interest in Amrabat following his efforts in Qatar.
The report adds that Fiorentina are eager to keep hold of their midfielder, although a suitable transfer offer from Tottenham could change that stance.
The Verdict: A useful signing for Spurs
With 13 Serie A appearances to his name this season, Amrabat has made more progressive passes (64) than any other player at Fiorentina, also racking up the second-highest percentage for accurate passes (90%) at the club.
In addition, the midfielder – who has been described as “world-class” by Morocco manager Walid Regragui – has also made the joint-second highest number of interceptions (11) at Fiorentina, showing how useful he can be off the ball as well as on it.
This highlights the strengths that the Moroccan boasts and what he would be able to offer Conte’s side in the middle of the park, especially when in possession.
Moving forward, if Conte and Spurs think that Amrabat would be a suitable addition to their squad, the Lilywhites should do all that they can to try and secure his signature once the January transfer window opens for business.
