United were linked with a move for Declan Rice before the ex-West Ham captain completed a £105m move to Arsenal and are said to be admirers of Amrabat.

The 26-year-old has developed into one of Fiorentina’s most important players, helping the club reach the Europa Conference League final last season, and starred for Morocco at the Qatar World Cup.

But, according to , Manchester United’s move for Amrabat is dependent on player sales, with Ten Hag ready to sanction the departures of Harry Maguire, Fred, Donny van de Beek, Dean Henderson, Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay.

Fred, Donny van de Beek and Martial could all also be sold before the transfer window closes, while Henderson is hoping to leave after United spent almost £50m on new goalkeeper Onana.

While Ten Hag is keen to welcome Amrabat to Old Trafford, former Manchester United defender Mikael Silvestre admits he is ‘not overwhelmed’ by the speculation.

‘Unless Scott [McTominay] or Fred leaves this summer, then there’s no room for Sofyan at the moment, but things can change between now and the end of the transfer window,’ he told .

‘We just need to wait and see in this particular case. He’s evidently a good player but in all honesty, I’m not overwhelmed with that link.’
