Manchester United are reportedly ramping up their interest in Fiorentina's Sofyan Amrabat as the transfer window draws to a close.
Recent speculation suggests that Fiorentina are open to considering offers for the Morocco midfielder, handing United a significant boost in the week leading up to the transfer deadline. While Liverpool are also claimed to be monitoring the 27-year-old, United have had him on their radar all summer.
The player's exclusion from Fiorentina's squad for their Europa Conference League play-off against Rapid Vienna and the fact he is training away from the first team have fuelled further speculation about his future. Giuseppe Barone, Fiorentina's chief executive, says the Italian side have not yet received any bids for Amrabat but did not rule out the possibility of selling him in the near future.
Barone told Sky (via the Mirror): "Sofyan's not working with the squad — but we have still not received any bid for Amrabat this summer. If there are players who are unhappy here, we can start considering bids for them, of course."

Speaking last week, Barone admitted the club would be open to exits for players who express an interest in moving on. "We are always ready for other entries and exits," he said to Labaro Viola. "If there's someone who isn't happy, we can satisfy him between now and the end of the transfer window."
Should United decide to act on their interest in Amrabat before the transfer window closes he could potentially become their fourth major signing of the summer. The Red Devils already secured Mason Mount, Rasmus Hojlund and Andre Onana.

However, United will likely need to offload some players before they can complete the signing. Brazilian midfielder Fred has already departed for Fenerbahce, while Scott McTominay is wanted by West Ham.
Amrabat is not the only midfield target being considered at Old Trafford. Everton's Amadou Onana and Bayern Munich's Ryan Gravenberch are also reported to be on Erik ten Hag’s shortlist.
