Barcelona and Premier League clubs are now vying for the signature of Sofyan Amrabat, the best midfielder in the 2022 World Cup.
When visiting Morocco’s dressing room following their semi-final loss to France, French President Emmanuel Macron proclaimed Amrabat the tournament’s best midfielder.
Chelsea, Liverpool, West Ham United, and Newcastle United are among the clubs vying for the Moroccan’s signature.
The Fiorentina midfielder was linked with a move to Tottenham during the summer transfer window, but the deal fell through.

According to Calciomercato, Barcelona wants to sign the Moroccan as a replacement for the aging Sergio Busquets.
According to the report, Fiorentina’s priority is to exercise Amrabat’s contract extension option as soon as he returns to Florence following his participation in the World Cup.
The Moroccan joined the Italian club in January 2020 and has since made 78 appearances in all competitions for the club, scoring one goal.
