Saudi Pro League club Al Ahli look set to make a move for Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat.
The 26-year-old is a summer target for Manchester United, and the Red Devils will step up their interest in the Moroccan after completing a deal for Rasmus Holjund.
Saudi Pro League team plotting to hijack Sofyan Amrabat move
Man United remain the front-runners to sign the World Cup star, but the Red Devils may struggle to meet the financial package put together by Al Ahli, according to L’Equipe.
The Saudi Pro League team has already spent big this summer, as they have brought in Roberto Firmino, Riyad Mahrez, and Allan Saint-Maximin.
However, they will now be looking to strengthen their options in the middle of the field.
United are reportedly aware of the Saudi interest in their midfield target, and it could see Erik ten Hag’s side move quicker in their pursuit of the midfielder.
