Liverpool target Inter midfielder Nicolo Barella

It’s been a transfer window full of surprises, and Liverpool could be set to carry on this trend.

As per British and Italian media, Liverpool are targeting Inter Milan midfielder Nicolo Barella.

Inter spent 32.5 million euros to sign the Italy international from Cagliari in the summer of 2020. He has four years left on his current contract which expires in 2026.

The midfielder has banged in 4 goals and provided 13 assists in 47 matches last term on all fronts.

The 25-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Italy. Barella has also left his mark at the international stage after netting 8 goals in 39 senior appearances for the Italy national team.

Nicolo Barella has been one of the star players for Inter Milan last season.

The Reds are looking to sign a midfielder and have identified the 25-year-old as potential transfer target.


Jurgen Klopp is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this summer.

Nicolo Barella is a skilled midfielder who can make a difference at both ends of the pitch. The former Cagliari man has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.

According to the report, “Liverpool are pondering a bid for Inter Milan midfielder Nicolo Barella. The Mirror says Liverpool would have to stump up between £75-100million to sign ‘long-standing’ target Barella. The Reds have monitored the Inter Milan midfielder for some time, sending scouts to watch him during five years at Cagliari between 2015 and 2020. But despite Jurgen Klopp’s growing injury list, the Liverpool manager has remained cautious in rushing a new signing or paying over the odds.”

It would take a huge offer from Liverpool to prise the 25-year-old midfielder from Inter Milan. The Italian giants would be wise to keep the Italy international, but if they do let him go expect it to be for a hefty sum.

Good signing for Liverpool?

If Liverpool and Klopp are seriously considering a midfielder, Barella could also prove to be a smart option.

The 25-year-old is certainly a player that would strengthen the current Liverpool squad and would be a good buy in the summer transfer window.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Liverpool.

How strong that interest is and whether Liverpool will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
