Verona close on Amrabat

Hellas Verona are close to securing Club Brugge and Morocco midfielder Sofyan Amrabat, on loan with option to buy for €3m.

Both La Gazzetta dello Sport and Sportitalia have the same story, noting the 23-year-old talent is on his way to Serie A.

It is expected to be a loan deal with option to buy for a total sum of €3m, although it remains to be seen how that will be spread out.

Despite turning 23 this week, Amrabat already has eight senior caps for Morocco under his belt.

He was born in the Netherlands, featuring for Utrecht and Feyenoord before his €2.5m move to Club Brugge last summer.

The midfielder scored one goal in 29 competitive games for the Belgians last term and had also been linked with Bologna.
