Saudi Pro League clubs interested in signing Atletico Madrid target Sofyan Amrabat

Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat has emerged as a target for the Saudi Pro League.

According to Gianluca di Marzio, clubs from Saudi Arabia have already begun negotiations with his representatives.

Amrabat has garnered a reputation as one of the finest holding midfielders in Serie A since his move to Hellas Verona from Club Brugge in 2019. He initially joined on loan before they made it permanent. 

After impressing with Verona, he moved to Fiorentina, where he formed a formidable midfield partnership alongside Rolando Mandragora and Giacomo Bonaventura under manager Vincenzo Italiano.

The Dutch-born midfielder was pivotal in Fiorentina’s journey to the Europa Conference League and the Coppa Italia finals last season. 

Amrabat also showcased his skills on the global stage during the 2022 World Cup, playing an instrumental role in Morocco’s run to the semi-finals. 

His ability to control the game with crisp passing and his proficiency at breaking up opposition play made him a standout performer.

While rumours had linked Amrabat with a move to Manchester United, it appears that Saudi Arabian clubs are the only ones to have made concrete offers for the midfielder. 

However, it is unclear whether a potential move to the Middle East appeals to the player.

La Liga champions Barcelona previously showed a keen interest in Amrabat. They made multiple attempts to sign him during the January transfer window. 

However, their pursuit has since cooled after securing the services of Ilkay Gundogan from Manchester City.

Atletico Madrid are another potential suitor for Amrabat. They were in advanced talks to reach a personal agreement before negotiating a transfer fee with Fiorentina.

As the speculation surrounding Amrabat’s future continues to swirl, top European clubs have closely monitored his situation. 

His impressive performances have undoubtedly attracted attention, but it remains unknown where his next chapter in football will unfold.
