Liverpool Are Leading The Chase To Sign This £44m Serie A Midfielder: The Right Fit For The Reds?

According to a recent report by the Mirror, Liverpool are one of the frontrunners to secure the services of Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella next summer.  It is understood that the Italian prospect could cost the Reds around £44m as a potential bidding war might take place between all of the interested parties at the end of this season.

The Rapid Rise Of Nicolo Barella

Barella is widely considered as one of the brightest young stars in the Italian top-flight, and he has caught the eye with some dazzling displays for Cagliari over the past couple of seasons. The Italian wonderkid has managed to establish himself as a first-team regular for the Serie A club this season after featuring in nine matches while scoring one goal across all competitions. He found the back of the net in Cagliari’s 1-0 win over Atalanta last month.

The 21-year-old played an integral part in helping his current club retain their top-flight status last season which goes to prove how influential he can be for Rolando Maran’s team. Hence, it is no wonder a top club like Liverpool are looking to snap him up next summer.

Barella has represented his nation at every youth level from Under-15 to Under-21. He has also managed to earn two international caps for the Italian national team. 

What Will Barella Add To Klopp’s Side?

The Cagliari born talent is speedy and can make some nice runs with the ball from midfield. He also has an excellent passing range and can distribute the ball immaculately while operating at the middle of the pitch. However, the Serie A star needs to develop a strong upper body if he wants to prove himself in the Premier League someday.

The Right Fit For The Merseyside Club?

Jurgen Klopp would do well to prize him away from the Serie A club as Barella has the potential to become one of the best players in his position. He can surely fit in at any one of the three central midfield positions at Liverpool. Moreover, the Italian prospect would be eager to showcase his talents, and that is precisely the type of player the Reds are looking for right now.
