The Italian adventure of Morocco international Sofyan Amrabat looks as if it will extend past one season.
The Dutch-born midfielder was sent this season on loan to Verona from Belgium’s Club Bruges and has quickly made a strong impression in Serie A, Italian reports on Friday said.
Amrabat, who has been employed as the playmaking midfielder in the traditional No. 10 role, has attracted the interest of a number of clubs and a formal expression of interest from Fiorentina, who have said they would be attempting to take him to Florence in the mid-season transfer window in January.
Amrabat’s form has also seen him win a recall to the Morocco squad after missing out on the Africa Cup of Nations finals in Egypt in mid-year. He has featured in all of the friendly matches since Vahlid Halilhodzic took over the reigns.
The 23-year-old started his career at FC Utrecht and moved to Feyenoord in 2017 but had a disappointing season there and went to Bruges in mid-2018.
Amrabat is the younger brother of Nordin Amrabat, now paying for Al Nassr in Saudi Arabia.
