Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat ‘monitoring’ Bayern Munich as option amidst Manchester United interest

Bayern Munich are being monitored by Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat this summer as a potential destination amidst interest from Manchester United, according to Sky Sport journalist Florian Plettenberg on Twitter.

As things stand, Erik ten Hag has held discussions with the Morocco international regarding a switch in the ongoing transfer window. The Dutch manager is an admirer of the midfielder.

However, the Red Devils are yet to make a concrete offer to the Viola for the 26-year-old. On the other hand, the Bavarians have also emerged as an option for the player’s management.

At the moment, Thomas Tuchel is looking to bolster his engine room at the Allianz Arena side with a number six. Amrabat is one of the names on the Bundesliga giants’ radar.

In the 2022/23 term, the Moroccan caught a lot of people’s attention with his displays for both club and country. The midfielder made it to the semi-finals of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar with the Atlas Lions.

On the other hand, Fiorentina made it to the final of the UEFA Europa Conference League final. Amrabat was key to their success, making 13 appearances in the competition as they lost out to West Ham United in the end.

For now, Bayern have the likes of Joshua Kimmich, Konrad Laimer, Leon Goretzka and Ryan Gravenberch in their ranks. Therefore, it seems like the Bavarians have enough talent.

On the other hand, Man United have Casemiro in their ranks. Unfortunately, we evidently lack cover for the Brazil international in our ranks. Fred and Scott McTominay have been inconsistent over the years.

Amrabat has proven himself at the highest level over the last few months. However, whether the Red Devils will be pipped by Bayern in pursuit of the Moroccan’s signature remains to be seen.
