Manchester United are set to submit an official offer to Fiorentina to sign Moroccan midfielder Sofyan Amrabat, reports confirm.
Amrabat has attracted plenty of interest from European clubs over the past few months, particularly after impressing in the FIFA World Cup with his national team, together with a strong campaign with the Viola, being integral to their road to the UEFA Europa Conference League Final.
United are one such club, as they are searching for more cover in midfield amid reports of possible departures for Fred and Scott McTominay, leaving them short at the heart of the team, especially should Casemiro be unavailable due to injury or suspension.
They have had long-standing interest in Amrabat, but they could finally be set to act on their interest, with Nicolo Schira reporting that Erik ten Hag's side are preparing a first official bid of around €23-25 million to submit to Fiorentina for the Moroccan.
He adds that talks are in progress for Amrabat.
Personal terms are seemingly not an issue, with the 26-year-old already reaching an agreement in principle with United for a contract until 2028 with a salary of €4 million per year.
Amrabat will offer plenty of positive qualities to United, with him having an impressive work-rate and being quick to break down the opposing team's play. Additionally, he has also shown a certain degree of comfort on the ball, while also being a good ball-carrying midfielder.
One thing for sure is that he will bring United a certain level of consistency in midfield, especially given his injury-free record, having featured in 49 games in all competitions last season, 41 of which were starts.
It remains to be seen whether the initial offer will be enough to tempt Fiorentina into selling, but given Amrabat's contract runs until June 2024, the Serie A side might seek to get any sort of fee in for him amid fears of losing him for free next season.
