‘For sure next time’ Morocco’s semifinalist, Barcelona who wants him
FC Barcelona’s love call for Sofiang Amrabat 스포츠토토 (27, ACF Fiorentina) is ‘currently ongoing’.
On the 4th (Korean time), Italian media Calciomercato said, ‘Barcelona really worked hard for Amrabat. They have offered to loan the midfielder to Mokoro.” Amrabat’s transfer ultimately failed. Barcelona moved to sign Amrabat until the end of the winter transfer window, but Fiorentina did not accept the offer. Citing Calciomercato, sports channel ESPN predicted that Barcelona (Spain) and Liverpool (England) would be among the clubs trying the hardest to recruit Amrabat ahead of the 2023-2024 season.
Amrabat is the main player who led Morocco’s semifinal miracle at the World Cup held in Qatar last year. He dominates the midfield with his vigorous activity and defensive power, emerging as a major target for big clubs. Barcelona has Sergio Busquets as a defensive midfielder, but he is not young enough to need a ‘replacement player’. Amrabat is the type the team needs, but it was decided to stay as Fiorentina did not allow the transfer. Amrabat’s current contract with Fiorentina runs until June 2024.
Starting with Utrecht in 2015, Amrabat moved to Feyenoord, Club Bruges, Hellas Verona and settled in Fiorentina in 2020. He played 17 league games this season, playing 1077 minutes without an attacking point.
