However, with Liverpool keen to bolster their injury-hit midfield, it appears they may have to look elsewhere as Amrabat has already stated his admiration for Atletico."I don't like to talk about others. But yes, what [Diego] Simeone does, what he has achieved... he has coached Atletico Madrid for many years," Amrabat recently told Marca recently. "I like his style of play. He has won a lot and I have a lot of respect for him. The players on his team are physically strong and aggressive. I like to play that way."Liverpool's top target is Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham, but he would cost upwards of €100m, so Fulham's Palhinha and Borussia Monchengladbach star Manu Kone are also reported to be on their shortlist.
