'Exceptional': O'Hara blown away by 'different class' 26-year-old Spurs are trying to sign at the World Cup
On TalkSPORT, O’Hara was naming his team of the tournament so far and said that the 26-year-old is one of his first picks.
The midfielder was one of the key reasons Morocco stunned Spain to book a place in the quarter-finals, where they will play Portugal.
And 90Min report that Spurs are still keen on the Fiorentina midfielder, who they came close to signing in January, during Antonio Conte’s first transfer window in charge.
O’Hara hails Amrabat
He said of Amrabat: “He has been exceptional.
“Straight in my team of the tournament, one of the first names on the teamsheet.
“What a performance he put in against Spain for Morocco. Different class. For me, Amrabat is in there.”
The report says that Liverpool are also tracking the midfielder but that the Serie A outfit have no intention of selling him when the transfer window opens next month.
In the world of modern scouting, we are past the point where a completely unknown player makes a name for themselves at the World Cup.
Spurs clearly knew how good Amrabat was but Conte was not able to get a deal over the line for him last winter and now he has shown more casual football fans how good he is.
His value may well have rocketed now given his increased profile, but for now, Amrabat will be focused on knocking Portugal out and continuing this sensational run.
