Liverpool are on the lookout for a deal for Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat to beat Manchester United and sign him.
Sofyan Amrabat is currently the subject of Liverpool move talks as they push for new midfielder signings.
This emerges from several reports that started over in the Netherlands with allegations from newspapers Algemeen Dagblad.
They suggest Liverpool are “on track” to complete Amrabat’s signing with an agreement now in effect.
It is said Liverpool have now agreed a deal worth around €35million (£30million) for Amrabat and a deal is now close to completion.
Fabrizio Romano claims there is no offer yet but that Liverpool are “now aware of the terms” needed to sign Amrabat.
Romano believes Liverpool are still weighing options for a midfield signing but Amrabat is certainly within bounds.
TalkSPORT Add that Amrabat are now in talks with Liverpool over a surprise move to Anfield.
It is pointed out that Manchester United have been chasing Amrabat all summer but financial fair play issues mean they are unable to secure a deal.
Liverpool could step in for Amrabat which leaves Erik ten Hag disappointed having worked with Amrabat during his time at FC Utrecht.
Sofyan Amrabat could join Wataru Endo at Liverpool
The pursuit in Liverpool midfield reigned in chaos last week.
A push for Romeo Lavia, then the move to Moises Caicedo, his move to Chelsea, his return to Lavia and then seeing him decide to go to Chelsea too… that was hard to follow.
Liverpool are now stepping up their moves, with Stuttgart midfielder Wataru Endo believed to be close to a move to the Reds.
Fabrizio Romano reports that Endo will now undergo a medical at Liverpool and a €18m (£15.5m) deal has been secured.
Endo is an experienced defensive midfielder at the age of 30 and has impressed as a Stuttgart captain in the Bundesliga.
Amrabat could now also join, providing Liverpool with two battle-hardened midfielders behind Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai.
Neither Endo nor Amrabat will really make a splash and signing both would be cheaper than just signing Lavia, with Liverpool now taking a different route.
Perhaps Liverpool just don’t believe the value in the top midfielders is there at the moment and would rather have Endo and Amrabat as workhorses until the right long-term option is found.
