Sofyan Amrabat is expected to be in high demand coming into the summer transfer window following his performance representing Morocco in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Given that his tenure with Fiorentina expires next year. Hence the 26-year-old is an appealing option for a number of clubs, including Barcelona. The Blaugrana are hunting for a pivot midfielder but are quickly running out of options. Reports say Martin Zubimendi and Joshua Kimmich are ruled out, and Ruben Neves ruled out by Xavi and his staff.
Spanish giants Rojiblancos and Blaugrana are in the race for signing Sofyan Amrabat
As a result, Amrabat seems to have the greatest backing within the club for succeeding Sergio Busquets as the pivot. And now, Moroccan journalist Izem Anass claims that the Fiorentina midfielder, whose current market value is €30 million, will join Barcelona or Atletico Madrid in the summer transfer window. The Rojiblancos, like Barcelona, have shown interest in Amrabat since the January transfer window. They, too, are working with limited finances. Hence they have been searching for cost-effective prospects in the market, making Moroccan international a possible target. Earlier reports have stated that Amrabat is desperate to join Barcelona. That might give the La Liga champions an advantage in the race to sign him.
It all relies on the Catalan giants’ Financial Fair Play predicament and how fast they can get rid of undesired players so that they may sign and register Amrabat. The pivot position is Xavi’s top concern moving into the summer. Hence the sooner they solve the problem, the better, because whoever arrives will require time to become acquainted to the fresh surroundings and the ways of Barcelona.
Football Express India previously mentioned SOFYAN AMRABAT as a major target this summer.
Sofyan Amrabat had an excellent 2022-23 season for Fiorentina, appearing 49 times in all competitions. He helped the club to reach the Coppa Italia and Europa Conference League finals. Amrabat has only scored once and supplied one assist in 107 appearances for Fiorentina. So he is unlikely to be a creative force, but his defensive skills are great, and he would undoubtedly provide an extra dimension to Barcelona’s midfield that was lacking during the 2022-23 season.
