Report: Tottenham move unlikely for Liverpool target Amrabat

Tottenham Hotspur signing Sofyan Amrabat during the January transfer window is unlikely, according to a report from the Daily Mail, in what may be a boost for Liverpool.

Fans and pundits alike have been waxing lyrical about the ‘outstanding‘ Morocco midfielder over the last few weeks. Without doubt, he has been one of the players of the tournament at the current World Cup.

He is a player Spurs have been heavily linked with over the last year. In fact, reports from Calciomercato claimed that Antonio Conte’s men were ready to finalise a deal during the previous January transfer window.

Gianluca Di Marzio told SoccerNews this week that Liverpool also want Amrabat. And his agents are actually pushing the £40 million-rated midfielder towards Anfield.

It remains to be seen if Liverpool are able to agree a deal for Amrabat. But the Daily Mail is now suggesting that a move to Tottenham is seen as unlikely.

Spurs fans may not be happy to hear that Amrabat is probably not joining. But they do appear to have real depth in the middle of the park. Oliver Skipp has barely had a look-in when he has been fit this season.

Conte and Fabio Paratici may have decided that the money would be better spent elsewhere. They have an opportunity to do something special this season. But they need to improve.

Centre-back appears to be a weakness right now. And you would imagine that Conte would love to sign a new right wing-back. Another forward would probably not go amiss either amid concerns over Richarlison’s fitness.

But there is no doubt that it will sting if Amrabat moves elsewhere in the Premier League and thrives.
