Barcelona make Amrabat transfer approach as La Liga leaders seek deadline day deal for Liverpool & Tottenham-linked star
- Midfielder starred at 2022 World Cup
- Linked with Premier League teams
- Now wanted at Camp Nou
WHAT HAPPENED? The combative 26-year-old has seen his stock soar after putting in a number of eye-catching performances at the 2022 World Cup – as Morocco made history by becoming the first African nation to reach the semi-final stage of FIFA’s flagship event.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Gerard Romero claims that Barcelona have joined the hunt for Amrabat’s signature, with a formal approach made as the Liga giants seek to beat Premier League heavyweights to the signature of a player that recently took in a visit to Camp Nou as the Blaugrana faced Getafe.
AND WHAT'S MORE: Amrabat has said of the interest he is reportedly attracting from across Europe: “I’m proud to be linked with top clubs like Barcelona and Atletico. But I’m a Fiorentina player, I respect the club and I have a great relationship with the president. We also have a good coach at Fiorentina.”

WHAT NEXT? Amrabat has been with Fiorentina since 2020, taking in 82 appearances for the Serie A outfit, and is tied to a contract through to 2024 that includes the option for a further 12-month extension.
