Liverpool will continue their pursuit of a World Cup star

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is set to meet Sofyan Amrabat’s representatives for a second time, according to Foot Mercato journalist Anas Bakhkhar. The midfielder has enjoyed a brilliant World Cup with Morocco.

The Reds have made their intentions to bolster their midfield clear since the summer, with their initial move for Arthur Melo disappointing after he picked up an injury. Amrabat’s sensational World Cup campaign attracted the attention of Jurgen Klopp and will be watched intently as he takes on France in tonight’s semi-final.

The midfielder has been a regular for Fiorentina since joining the club two years ago and with his contract set to expire in 2024, the Italian club could look to cash in on the World Cup star. It has been reported that Liverpool have already held one meeting with Amrabat’s agent and will now look to lure him to Anfield in a second meeting.

Speaking to Empire of the Kop, Bakhkhar said: “Liverpool’s coach Jurgen Klopp has met the agent of Sofyan Amrabat, we can also mention that his brother, Nordin Amrabat, who has been working on his brother’s career for a long time now, was also there and they both met with the coach.

“It was a very good meeting; it was positive, and they will be meeting a few days after the end of the World Cup to see if the interest is the same for Jurgen Klopp. After his performances in Qatar, the interest shouldn’t change and there will be other meetings to see the demands of Fiorentina, also the demands of his agent – to see if that transfer will go ahead or not.”

Amrabat is one of a number of midfielders Liverpool have been heavily linked with in recent weeks, with Portuguese media outlet Record claiming they have already reached a pre-agreement with Benfica’s Enzo Fernandez while it is believed that they are still lining up a move for Jude Bellingham.
