Liverpool keen on signing 20-year-old highly-demanded Italian

October 19, 2017

According to the reports, Both Inter and AC Milan have set their sights on Liverpool target Nicolo Barella.

The Reds head coach Jurgen Klopp is a huge admirer of the 20-year-old Cagliari rising star and was in pursuit of the talented midfielder during the summer transfer window.

Nicolo Barella stayed put but speculation regarding his future at the Italian club will not go away. And now, the reports from Calciomercato claim that both Milan clubs are set to rival Liverpool’s pursuit of Barella in January.

The highly-demanded starlet has enjoyed a good start to the new campaign and was recently called up to the Italy national squad for the first time.

Meanwhile, the Reds target Timo Werner admits he is keen to leave RB Leipzig for a ‘big club’ and has named the Merseyside giants as a potential destination.

The 21-year-old sensation has managed to score 21 goals in the Bundesliga last campaign and has made an impressive start to the current season with three goals in as many games.

The German forward was reportedly high on Jurgen Klopp’s summer shortlist and the striker has suggested he would be keen to follow his RB Leipzig teammate, Naby Keita, to Anfield.
