Liverpool could make an offer to sign Nicolo Barella in January

According to Italian outlet Calciomercato (h/t Liverpool Echo), Liverpool are once again linked with Inter Milan midfielder Nicolo Barella and could make a move for the Italian international during the January transfer window.

It is revealed that the Serie A side would be willing to sell the midfielder for £60m. Rumours have linked the player with Liverpool over the course of the past 12 months. But, nothing has happened on the transfer front. This new update can change that come January.

The Reds could be tempted to make a move in the winter in order to begin their midfield revival. Jurgen Klopp’s men are severely short in that department this season, with injuries not helping the cause.

With the likes of Naby Keita, James Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain expected to leave Anfield next summer (contracts expiring), there could be a situation where the Merseyside club need 2-3 midfielders by the end of the 2023 summer transfer window.

Adding one of them in January would not only solve the problem for the future but also make them stronger for the second half of this season. Looking back at the winter window of this year, and how the addition of Luis Diaz made the difference not just for the years to come, but also during the second half of last season.

Liverpool should cash in on the opportunity to sign Barella as soon as it comes.

Barella is a quality player who can be an ideal addition to a Klopp midfield at Liverpool. He is good on the ball, can break lines with passes and works very hard off the ball. The Italian international is technically very good and is young enough (25 years old) to shoulder the responsibility of leading the Reds’ midfield for years to come.
