Report: PSG now pushing to sign Spurs target Sofyan Amrabat

Paris Saint-Germain are now pushing to sign Sofyan Amrabat ahead of Tottenham Hotspur, with Tuttomercatoweb reporting that Achraf Hakimi recommended that his club look to land his countryman in January.

Amrabat, of course, could well be on the move next month. It comes off the back of his ‘outstanding‘ performances at the World Cup as Morocco made it to the semi-finals.

He has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League. Gianluca Di Marzio recently told SoccerNews that Jurgen Klopp would love to bring him to Liverpool. Meanwhile, Tottenham also want the 26-year-old.

Tuttomercatoweb also suggests that Spurs and the Reds want Amrabat. Antonio Conte is a long-time admirer of the midfielder. And both clubs are considering a move for him in the January transfer window.

However, they now face some hefty competition. According to Tuttomercatoweb, PSG are ready to make a strong push to sign Amrabat, with Hakimi recommending the midfielder to the hierarchy at Parc des Princes.

In fact, it is suggested that Kylian Mbappe has been spoken to about the possibility of the club signing Amrabat in the hope that he gives his approval.

Fiorentina meanwhile, are prepared to sell Amrabat for over £26.5 million (€30 million).

Amrabat has been superb for Fiorentina this season. So his form at the World Cup will not have come as a huge surprise to some of those who have been following him closely.

But it remains to be seen if Spurs are prepared to spend big on another central midfielder.

Rodrigo Bentancur and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg have been outstanding together. And they have further depth in the likes of Yves Bissouma and Oliver Skipp.

Meanwhile, centre-back has been a problem for Spurs lately. And they also need to be better on the right of the defence. That may be where the majority of their budget goes. And they may be wary of getting involved in any kind of bidding war when PSG are in the mix.
