The World Cup round of 16 begins on Saturday, with both the Netherlands and Argentina in action and hoping to secure a place in the quarter-finals. 

France, one of the favourites for the tournament, are in action on Sunday as they face Poland, before England continue their campaign against Senegal.

Some of the other favourites for the tournament are in action over the following days, with Brazil facing South Korea on Monday and Spain going up against Morocco on Tuesday.

Luis Enrique’s side were beaten 2-1 by Japan in their final group game, a result that knocked out Germany, but he will be hoping to return to winning ways against their African opponents on Tuesday.

Morocco, however, have been impressive so far at the tournament, beating both Belgium and Canada and drawing against Croatia.

Now, it appears that one of their stars has attracted interest from the Premier League.

According to Sky Sports Germany’s Florian Plettenberg, Liverpool are keeping tabs on Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat.

Amrabat’s performances have alerted the likes of Liverpool

The defensive midfielder has been in fine form for his country in Qatar, starting all three of their group stage games.

Amrabat, 26, has made 20 appearances across all competitions for Fiorentina so far this term, taking his tally for the club to 78 since moving from Hellas Verona in the summer of 2020.

Plettenberg claims that Amrabat has been informed that a number of Premier League sides are interested in him, and he is open to the prospect of leaving the club.

The Moroccan currently earns around £3 million-per-year, and is valued by the Serie A side at around £25 million.

It is claimed that The Reds are looking at Amrabat alongside the likes of Jude Bellingham and Moises Caicedo, as Jurgen Klopp looks to bolster his midfield options.

Amrabat is usually deployed as a defensive midfielder for both club and country, although he has also been used as a centre-back for Fiorentina.
