Liverpool ready to fight it out with Tottenham Hotspur to land Italy’s Euro 2020 star – report


liverpool Tottenham Hotspur have shown interest in signing Inter Milan midfielder Nicolo Barella, according to a Spanish outlet brand.

Nicolo Barella has had a great summer. The 24-year-old guided Inter Milan to win its first scudetto title in more than a decade before playing a key role in Italy’s Euro 2020 win over home favorite England.

Given his recent good form, it should come as no surprise that Premier League clubs Tottenham and Liverpool have shown interest in signing Barela from Inter Milan.

Despite the interest of the Premier League giants, Inter Milan are not keen on selling a player they see as a future captain. The Serie A winners had their own financial issues. However, the sale of star defender Achraf Hakimi to Paris Saint-Germain has helped the club ease their financial problems.

According to the above source, a bid in the region of €60-70 million by Tottenham Hotspur or Liverpool could entice Inter Milan to sell their prized possessions.

Liverpool are currently in the market to sign a Ginny Wijnaldum replacement

Liverpool lost Georginio Wijnaldum to Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer in the first transfer window. Since his departure, the Reds have been looking for a midfielder to replace Wijnaldum, who was crucial to Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool have previously been linked with several players, including Renato Sanches, Saul Niguez, Florian Neuhaus and Yuri Tielemann, with Barela being the latest to join Anfield this summer.

In the grand scheme of things, Nicolo Barella would be a perfect replacement for Wijnaldum at Liverpool. Like the Dutchman, Barela is also a renowned box-to-box midfielder with great strength and energy.
