As recently revealed by journalist ?nas Bakhkhar via Empire of the Kop, Amrabat has also previously been approached by Liverpool, though the deal never worked out due to the competition for places at Anfield, and with other midfield targets also on the club’s radar at the time.

Amrabat had an outstanding World Cup, helping Morocco reach the semi-finals, and it wouldn’t be at all surprising to see him earn a big move soon.
Liverpool or Barcelona would undoubtedly benefit from his arrival, but for the time being it looks like Barca showing the strongest interest, but with Fiorentina not playing ball.
