Amrabat is not an unknown name to the world football fans – Nordin Amrabat is a Galatasaray player and a current Morocco international. Sofyan is his younger brother, perhaps even more talented than the ex PSV and Venlo player. He’d played since his early years at Utrecht, although he has not yet made his debut in Eredivisie. Despite that, many clubs have shown interest, including Arsenal. It is also said that Arsene Wenger is a big fan of his talent. Youth Dutch national team coach has made enquiries about him, but he is currently playing in the Morocco U-17 national team and did very well at the U-17 FIFA World Cup, while his team, has won the group, but unfortunately lost with Ivory Coast in the knockout stages. He is a very versatile player – he can play as a number 10 or on either side of midfield, but perhaps he feels the best as number 6, thanks to his technique and footballing intelligence, he can have a big influence on his team.
