Manchester United have reportedly already made one offer for Fiorentina midfielder and Erik ten Hag target Sofyan Amrabat, which was rejected by the Italian outfit.

Manchester United, after securing the signing of André Onana from Inter Milan, have adjusted their focus towards signing a striker and a midfielder before the window closes.

Erik ten Hag is said to want Rasmus Højlund from Atalanta as his primary striker option and has opted to sign Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat as a second midfield signing of the summer.

United have already secured the services of Mason Mount from Chelsea, signing the England international for a fee of £55 million plus a further £5m in add-ons.

On the topic of Amrabat, Corriere dello Sport via Sport Witness claim that the Italian club are looking for a fee of around £26m and that this figure is “far from” the offer that United have already tabled – although the exact proposed fee was not detailed.

Ten Hag has previously worked with Amrabat while both manager and player were employed by Dutch club FC Utrecht.

However, Amrabat is not only on United’s list – the player is also being namechecked as an option for Liverpool should the Merseyside club sell Fabinho, who is being targeted by clubs in Saudi Arabia.
