Manchester United have suffered a blow in the race for Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat, as it emerges that a Premier League rival have entered the race for the Moroccan.
According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool are ready to enter the race for the Moroccan midfielder as they continue to struggle to sign a defensive-minded midfielder after they lost out to Moises Caicedo and seemingly Romeo Lavia, too, who was once linked with United.
The report from the Daily Mail says that despite ruling out a move for Amrabat earlier in the window, the Anfield club could be ready to reenter the race for the 26-year-old midfielder.
This could be another huge blow after it emerged a defensive signing may well be unlikely due to Harry Maguire’s reluctance to leave Old Trafford.
United’s window has stalled
It now seems another signing could be a struggle due to the financial outlay done by United so far this summer. Amrabat is supposedly a relatively cheap deal for United to do. With an outlay of just £25 million needed for the Moroccan, he could well prove to be a bargain.
United’s slow negotiations affecting deals again
United have had a habit in the past of missing out on targets due to their slow negotiations or failure to release the funds due to it being a risk.

Caicedo has now just joined Chelsea for £110 million. The hope will be from United’s end that they won’t be making the same mistake if they miss out on Amrabat.
