Morgan Amalfitano (born 20 March 1985 in Nice) is a French professional footballer who is currently playing for Lille. He plays as a midfielder and has played for Cannes, Sedan, Lorient, Marseille, West Bromwich Albion and West Ham United. Amalfitano has earned one cap for the France national team, representing his country in a friendly in February 2012.

His main position is as a wide midfielder but he can also operate as an attacking or central midfielder. His younger brother Romain also plays professional football.

Amalfitano made his professional debut with CS Sedan Ardennes in a 1–1 draw against Marseille on 6 August 2006 under coach Serge Romano. He went on to play 30 games that season, starting in 28 of them. However, Sedan finished 19th and they were relegated to Ligue 2. The next season, Sedan managed to finish fourth failing to regain promotion under coach Jose Pasqualetti.

In the summer of 2008, Amalfitano moved to Ligue 1 side Lorient. He scored his first goal for Lorient, and his first professional goal, on 15 November 2008, scoring his side's first goal as they came from 2–0 down to defeat Marseille 2–3. On 23 December 2009, Amalfitano scored two goals as Lorient twice came from a goal behind to defeat Valenciennes 3–2.

On 28 March 2010, Amalfitano provided an assist and scored a goal as Lorient completed a 4–0 rout over Saint-Étienne. On 5 May, Amalfitano had a hand in both goals as Lorient drew 2–2 with Monaco, scoring his side's first equalizer before setting up Kévin Gameiro for a late equalizer that secured a point for the club. On 6 November 2010, Amalfitano provided assists for both of Gameiro's goals as Lorient defeat Saint-Étienne by a score of 2–1. In three seasons with the club, Amalfitano played 121 matches and scored 15 goals in all competitions.

Amalfitano made his debut in a 2–1 victory for France in a friendly against neighbors Germany on 29 February 2012. He replaced his then Marseille teammate Mathieu Valbuena after 67 minutes and provided the cross from which Florent Malouda scored their second goal of the game.
