The Serie A club are refusing to accept Barcelona’s conditions for the loan deal as they feel it doesn’t match their valuation of the player and there is also little time for them to find a replacement. But, with the Moroccan midfielder trying his best to force the move, Fiorentina could be forced to let him go.
Amrabat Attracting Interest After Brilliant World Cup Campaign
The Fiorentina midfielder was one of Morocco’s best players at the World Cup and played a major role in helping his side reach the semi-finals, defeating the likes of Spain and Portugal in the process. He played every minute of their campaign, featuring in all eight games and was a huge part of their defensive success.
In fact, he was so impressive that France president Emmanuel Macron told him he was the “best midfielder of the World Cup’. Amrabat’s brilliant tournament has resulted in a lot of interest from major clubs, with Liverpool also reported to be targeting the midfielder.
