Report: Tottenham now keen on £12.5m midfielder who outshone De Bruyne in Qatar

Tottenham Hotspur are once again been linked with a move for Moroccan midfielder, Sofyan Amrabat, ahead of the January transfer window.

Amrabat shone for Morocco yesterday as they remarkably beat Belgium in the World Cup. The Fiorentina ace outshone the likes of Kevin de Bruyne in that display, helping Morocco to a famous win.

And according to La Viola News, that performance – as well as his form in general – has got Tottenham on alert again.

Of course, Spurs interest in Amrabat is nothing brand new. It was claimed back in January of this year that he was a midfielder who the club could sign. At the time, reports had suggested Spurs were looking to take Amrabat on loan with a view to making him a permanent signing for around £12.5m.

Amrabat, 26, has done well in Florence and will break the 100-appearance barrier for Fiorentina if he does stay put and fit this season. The midfielder, who is capable of playing across the middle, has enjoyed spells in both Belgium and Holland prior to moving to Italy.

And with Morocco now in with a chance of getting to the last 16, Amrabat could have even more chances to impress the onlooking Tottenham scouts.

TBR’s View: Amrabat could be a solid option for Tottenham

There wasn’t much excitement when he was initially mentioned all the way back in January but judging by this tournament, Amrabat could do well for Tottenham.

He is more than capable in that midfield, and he brings a tenacity and quality to the game which Antonio Conte would surely love.

Sure, there are probably bigger names and talents out there for Spurs to pursue. But Amrabat might be realistically gettable and Fabio Paratici’s links to Italy could help. Certainly, he’d not make Spurs any worse and he showed against Belgium just how good he can be.
