According to a report in Voetbal International, Tottenham Hotspur are among a number of clubs who are interested in signing Hellas Verona midfielder Sofyan Amrabat.

The midfielder, who is currently on loan from Belgian side Club Brugge, has been extremely impressive since arriving in Italy.

The report claims Hellas Verona can make the deal for Amrabat permanent by paying €3.5m before the end of the season.

It is suggested that the Serie A club will take the option to sign the midfielder permanently before selling him on for a much higher price.

The report highlights that there are no lack of suitors for the Moroccan international with Spurs and West Ham both said to be keen on landing him.

Napoli, AC Milan, Lazio and Florentina have also been mentioned as potential destinations for the 23-year-old, with Napoli mentioned as the likely front runners to complete a deal.

Hellas Verona will demand around €20m for Amrabat after they make the transfer permanent, which would represent a healthy profit for the Italian outfit.

Spurs Web Opinion

It could be the case that Amrabat is one of many young players that the club is tracking but I fail to see why a signing a central midfielder would be a priority for the club in January. Given that Mourinho seems to prefer playing with two midfield pivots, we are fairly well stocked in that position with Dier, Winks, Sissoko, Ndombele and Skipp to choose from.
