Aston Villa join Man Utd in race to sign Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat

Aston Villa have joined Manchester United in the race to sign Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat this summer, according to Viola News.

The Morocco international had a splendid 2022/23 campaign for club and country, and he is now eyeing a bigger challenge elsewhere.

United are one of the clubs interested in signing him, and an approach could depend on possible midfield exits over the next few weeks.

It is now revealed that Atletico Madrid have cooled their interest in Amrabat, but the Premier League solution is still alive for the 26-year-old.

Aside from the Red Devils, Villa and Tottenham Hotspur are also in the mix to land his services.

Fiorentina currently value him at €30 million, but they have yet to receive any transfer offer.

United may need to hurry up in Amrabat pursuit

United are currently looking to part ways with Fred. He is the subject of interest from Galatasaray, but a transfer fee has yet to be finalised.

The Turkish champions are willing to pay €8m for the Brazil international, but the Red Devils insist on €12m to consider his departure.

Aside from Fred, Donny van de Beek is another candidate that could head for the exit door soon.

He scored with a wonderful volley against Lyon last week, but was an unused substitute in the recent 2-0 friendly win over Arsenal in New Jersey.

In our view, United’s approach for Amrabat could depend on the duo leaving the club. The hierarchy may need to hurry up with the process.

Villa have been very ambitious in the transfer market after finishing seventh in the Premier League under manager Unai Emery against the odds.

They have signed quality players such as Pau Torres and Moussa Diaby, and we won’t be surprised if they are weighing up a move for Amrabat.

Amrabat has a dream of playing in La Liga, but he should be tempted to switch to the Premier League with the lack of lucrative bids from Spain.

The Utrecht graduate would be a fine addition to the Red Devils squad. He would provide strong competition to Casemiro for the number six role.

He is not a tough tackler like Casemiro, but possesses strong distribution and concentration. He has a terrific work rate over the course of 90 minutes.

Amrabat was handed his senior debut at Utrecht by manager Erik ten Hag, and could easily be convinced to join United if they can agree on a transfer fee.
