Liverpool make 26-year-old midfielder top transfer target set to present £50m to seal deal
Fabrizio Romano stated that Nicolo Barella is a player that Liverpool really value while they are looking for a new midfielder.
Last time, didn’t the Reds have a terribly bad season? Everyone anticipated they would challenge for the Premier League crown again after winning the Community Shield, but they didn’t even finish in the top four.
At this point, Jurgen Klopp is keen to bolster his squad, and Romano revealed on GiveMeSport that Barella is a player like Liverpool.
Fabrizio Romano says Liverpool ‘appreciate’ Nicolo Barella
Liverpool have been in need of midfield reinforcements for about two years.
The Reds paid a price for not addressing the issue last summer. Klopp is aware that he must avoid repeating his mistake, and they have already carried out some successful deals.
Alexis Mac Allister, an excellent player from Argentina, was recently acquired by Liverpool from Brighton. He has the talent to be a fantastic midfielder for the Reds, but they still need to add at least one more player for that position.
Inter Milan star Nicolo Barella is one of the players who has been linked with a move to Anfield, and Fabrizio Romano has said that Liverpool really value him.
The Reds have yet to determine if the Italian is the type of player they are currently looking for.
Romano said: “The reported fee of £50m for Barella will not be enough for any club to sign him. Inter wants much more than this and it is not going to be an easy negotiation in any case.
“For Liverpool, he is appreciated, yes, but they are not yet sure that this is the type of player they need.
“Let’s see in the next few days or weeks.”
Liverpool could use two more central midfielders, but they only need one more.
Barella would be fantastic in that position. The 26-year-old enjoyed a fantastic season with Inter, helping them on their run to the Champions League final.
He is currently one of the best midfielders in Italy and is at the point in his career where he is ready to take the next step in his growth.
Waiting to see if Liverpool make any move to sign him this summer will be interesting.
