Tottenham want the World Cup hero but prefer to join Liverpool as Klopp plans talks

Tottenham Hotspur want Sofyan Amrabat but the Fiorentina midfielder prefers to sign for his Premier League rivals Liverpool as things stand.

That’s according to French outlet Foot Mercato, who claim Tottenham would “advance their pawns” in the race to sign Amrabat.

Antonio Conte is said to be a huge fan and Tottenham are one of the most interested clubs when it comes to signing the Moroccan.

However, it is pointed out that Jurgen Klopp plans to speak to Amrabat’s officials again, having already met them once.

Liverpool and Klopp have reportedly made Amrabat a priority target alongside Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham.

At the moment, Amrabat has a penchant for signing for Liverpool over Tottenham and everyone else, seemingly enticed by a move to Anfield.

Fiorentina are at least trying to extend Amrabat’s contract but that will be difficult after his overwhelming World Cup.

Interest is at an all-time high and Fiorentina may well find Amrabat looking to capitalize on their big opportunity in 2023.

Liverpool’s move makes more sense for Amrabat

Tottenham did indeed target Amrabat well before their stellar World Cup season with Morocco.

A loan deal with a €15m (£13m) option to buy was negotiated in January this year but the deal fell through.

Tottenham unsurprisingly still like Amrabat and must have been dazzled by his World Cup exploits in Qatar.

But with Rodrigo Bentancur, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Oliver Skipp and Yves Bissouma signing another central midfielder doesn’t really fit.

If Tottenham were to sign a midfielder it really should be a more attacking, creative option rather than a defensive machine like Amrabat.

Liverpool just makes more sense, especially given Amrabat’s ability to play that lone midfielder role in front of defence.

Fabinho has not been at his best this season and Amrabat could be ideal competition for the Brazilian star.

Perhaps Amrabat realizes that Liverpool can offer him a better role than Tottenham and that’s why he prefers Anfield at the moment.
