According to renowned journalist Alfredo Pedulla, Manchester United have already made an initial proposal for Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat.
Rasmus Hojlund was recently signed by the Red Devils from Fiorentina. The striker is poised to join the club in a €85 million deal.
Erik ten Hag’s next target is Amrabat, and Pedulla writes that United’s proposal for the Moroccan international has ‘already arrived’ at the Serie A club.
Amrabat would be an excellent addition.
This summer, United has been very specific about their transfer goals. They’ve already signed Mason Mount and Andre Onana, both of whom were preferred by the boss.
Similarly, once Harry Kane became too expensive to purchase, Hojlund became the Dutchman’s top striker target. Ten Hag is now looking forward to reuniting with Amrabat.
At Utrecht, the Moroccan worked for the Red Devils’ manager. Ten Hag gave him his senior debut, and the two have remained close ever since.
Personal terms for a summer switch have already been agreed upon, and a transfer now rests on the Red Devils satisfying the Serie A club’s transfer demands.
Fiorentina’s greatest asset is currently valued at €30 million. United has made an initial bid for the midfielder, although it is likely to be less than La Viola’s asking price.
This summer, the club has been more savvy in the transfer market, and will almost probably aim to sign Amrabat for a reduced upfront amount with performance add-ons.
Amrabat, one of the best holding midfielders in Serie A, would be an excellent signing for United. He’d be an improvement over Scott McTominay and Fred.
In recent years, the Moroccan has excelled at distribution and ball control. He also works tirelessly and enjoys competing in challenges.
He’d be a tough competitor for Casemiro’s number six spot next season.
