A new transfer rumor suggests that Liverpool might make a serious effort to sign Nicolo Barella. They are targeting the midfielder from Inter Milan, during the upcoming summer transfer window.
Nicolo Barella is widely considered one of the most impactful players in Serie A. He started 22 league games this season and played a vital role for Inter Milan. Barella has been productive this season, contributing five goals and six assists from his midfield position. His impressive performances have not gone unnoticed. Since, its a rumor that Liverpool has interest in signing him during the upcoming transfer window.
Although Barella’s current contract with Inter Milan runs until 2026, it seems that Liverpool’s manager, Jurgen Klopp, is determined to explore the possibility of signing the 26-year-old midfielder.
Why is Liverpool showing interest in Nicolo Barella?
InterLive.it (via Sport Witness) has reported that FSG, the ownership group of Liverpool, may make a significant effort to sign Barella for Jurgen Klopp this summer. The Liverpool manager is reportedly preparing a major squad overhaul. Barella is famous to be a key target for the club.
Barella is famous for his impressive abilities both on and off the ball. He boasts an 84.8% pass completion rate and has been averaging 1.3 tackles per match in the Serie A this season. These statistics highlight his quality in possession as well as his tenacity when not in possession.
In addition to Barella, the report also mentions Ismael Bennacer, a midfielder from AC Milan, as a possible signing for Liverpool. Bennacer has been averaging 2.4 tackles per game in Serie A this season. This makes him an attractive option for the Reds. However, this deal seems unlikely.
It is uncertain whether Liverpool could afford to sign both Barella and Bellingham. But if they were able to do so, it would significantly improve their midfield for years to come. Both players possess exceptional skills on and off the ball, which could provide a new dimension to Liverpool’s midfield and potentially transform their fortunes in the future.
