Born in Canet de Mar, Barcelona, Catalonia, Amat joined RCD Espanyol's youth system at the age of only seven. He began appearing as a senior with the B-team, in Segunda División B.
On 24 January 2010, two months shy of his 18th birthday, Amat played his first La Liga match with the club, coming on as a late substitute in a 1–1 home draw against RCD Mallorca. He finished his first full season with 26 appearances (28 all competitions comprised), helping the Pericos to a final eighth position.
For 2012–13, Amat was loaned to fellow league side Rayo Vallecano, being first-choice during the campaign. He scored his first goal for the Madrid outskirts team on 24 February 2013, netting from 50 metres in an eventual 1–2 home loss to Real Valladolid and also putting one in his own net in the same match.
On 27 June 2013, Premier League club Swansea City announced Amat had been signed for a transfer fee of £2.5 million on a four-year deal. It was subject to international clearance and a medical. He made his official debut on 1 August, playing the full 90 minutes in a 4–0 home victory over Malmö FF in the first leg of the third qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League.
On 11 March 2015, Amat signed a one-year contract extension, keeping him at the Liberty Stadium until 2018. On 7 July 2017, he was loaned to Real Betis for one season.
Amat shares his birthdate with fellow Espanyol youth graduate Román Golobart.
