The younger brother of former Watford winger Nordit, Sofyan is making a name for himself on the continent, having joined Hellas Verona on loan from Club Brugge over the summer.
A versatile 23-year-old who can play out wide, in central midfield and even at right-back, Amrabat is proving himself to be a useful utility player in Serie A with his all-action performances seemingly catching the eye of two London rivals.
Calciomercato reports that West Ham and Spurs are big fans of a player who made his name in Holland with Utrecht and Feyenoord, with Lazio and Fiorentina interested too. Verona have the option to sign Amrabat permanently for just £3 million, meaning they can expect to make a big profit should they sell him on.
It remains to be seen whether Tottenham’s decision to replace Mauricio Pochettino with Jose Mourinho affects their stance but the ten-time international is the sort of adaptable, hard-working player who the former Manchester United and Chelsea boss can make good use out of.
He averages 2.5 tackles per game, displaying the kind of tenacity that will impress the pragmatic Mourinho, while completing almost 90 per cent of his passes in Serie A.
