Sky reporter has heard Antonio Conte ‘really likes’ the 25-year-old
Speaking on the Last Word on Spurs YouTube channel, Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge discussed Tottenham Hotspur and their search for a new midfielder.
The London club were in the hunt for a new center midfielder this month, with Franck Kessie and Weston McKennie, but it seems unlikely that either of those players will head to north London this month.
However, one player Tottenham are apparently close to signing is Sofyan Amrabat.
The Fiorentina midfielder is apparently set to join Tottenham, and according to Bridge, he’s a player Antonio Conte likes a lot.
What has been said of Amrabat?
The journalist shared what he knows about Amrabat.
“The midfielder needs serious and serious work. Every time Spurs play Chelsea I think ‘Kovacic is on the bench, oh no’. Kante is on the bench, oh no. They can’t do what they want to do in January. I know it’s frustrating, the players they want, they can’t bring them in at the moment,” Bridge said.
“Sofyan Amrabat is not the first choice, I think he is a stopgap for now. Now Conte, a colleague in Italy tells me, he really likes Amrabat. I’ve said that over and over again on Sky, if Conte likes a player, that’s good enough for me.
Amrabat might not be the most glamorous signing in Spurs history, but if Antonio Conte is a fan of the player, you should trust his judgement.
Indeed, Conte is one of the best coaches in the world for a reason, he knows what makes a good footballer, and if he thinks Amrabat has what it takes, you have to trust him.
There’s a reason Conte tried to sign this player from Inter, and now it looks like he’ll finally get his man at Tottenham.
