According to La Repubblica via Viola News, the Reds will soon make their first official bid for the Morocco star in the coming days, with Liverpool now leading the chase for Amrabat.
As per the report, Jurgen Klopp has already spoken to Amrabat about a move to Anfield, with the 26-year-old seemingly sold on swapping Tuscany for Merseyside this month.
Lauded by Morocco manager Walid Regragui as a ‘world-class’ player, Amrabat is looking likely to be Liverpool’s second defensive midfield signing of the window after this week’s arrival of Wataru Endo.
Many Liverpool fans would love to see Amrabat at Anfield next season, with the midfielder one of the most underrated in his position in Europe.
Moreover, with Liverpool now likely to pip Manchester United to Amrabat’s signature, that narrative thread would make the transfer that extra bit special for the Reds.
## Liverpool Must Secure Amrabat Quickly
With Endo signed, Liverpool’s work must now focus on bringing in another defensive midfielder. Amrabat fits the bill perfectly as he is yet to hit his prime at 26 and showed his quality at the 2022 World Cup.
With a bid set to be launched, there is a chance Amrabat could be a Red before their next match against Newcastle United next weekend. Securing his signature swiftly must be a priority, as he could prove a valuable addition to Liverpool’s midfield.
