LIVERPOOL has been keeping a close eye on the World Cup in Qatar and may have found their next bargain.
Fiorentina’s Sofyan Amrabat could find himself back in the Premier League with interest from Liverpool after his stellar performances during the World Cup with Morocco next year.
His performances were instrumental in Morocco becoming the first African team in history to reach the semi-finals of the competition.
According to Footmercato, the 26-year-old would be available to the Reds for just £30million, the same price Spanish maestro Thiago cost them from Bayern Munich in 2020.
Jurgen Klopp has revealed he is looking for ways to improve midfield following injury concerns with Jordan Henderson and Thiago earlier in the season.
Jude Bellingham has been heavily linked with a move to Merseyside but a £100m+ asking price has cast that move in doubt.
Amrabat impressed fans after his performances against Spain and Portugal.
At a score well below Bellingham’s, the Moroccan has reportedly become the more attractive option for Klopp.
The midfielder is most comfortable playing right in front of the defense where he excelled for Morocco, helping them keep four of their six games without conceding a goal during the tournament.
Liverpool fans will see Amrabat as the perfect replacement for Fabinho, who has struggled for form since the start of the season after being one of their key players.

When the Moroccan moves to the Premier League, he will follow in his older brother’s footsteps, with Nordin Amrabat set to play for Watford in the 16/17 season.
