Fiorentina have reportedly set a deadline for Sofyan Amrabat to decide whether or not he will leave the club, as the likes of Atletico Madrid, Manchester United and Liverpool watch on.
As written on page 21 of Tuesday’s Corriere dello Sport, La Viola will give Amrabat the next “48 to 72 hours”, ie. until the close of play on Friday to decide whether he will stay or go.
Fiorentina would like to avoid a situation where they enter the final few days of the transfer window in search of a last-minute replacement.
The asking price for Amrabat is believed to stand at around €30m, and while there had been interest from a number of clubs around Europe, a move has not yet materialised as said sides have been focussed on various other targets.
Barcelona were pushing to sign the Morocco international in the January transfer window immediately after the World Cup, but the Catalans were not able to agree a suitable deal with Fiorentina.
The 27-year-old has also been linked with a move to reunite with former coach Erik ten Hag at Manchester United, but that has also not gone through.
Then, there were the recent suggestions that Liverpool could be interested, but their signing of Wataru Endo has lessened the priority.
Atletico Madrid also emerged in their search to replace Rodrigo De Paul, but his suggested move to Saudi Arabia has reportedly collapsed, which means that Amrabat’s services are likely no longer required.
