This summer we expect Liverpool to move for a midfielder. The Reds are a man light in the middle and we need an injection of energy and flair. This energy and flair could come from Italy. Some Liverpool fans have reacted to reports of a possible bid for Nicolo Barella.
Gaps in the middle
The Reds have been lacking in reliably fit midfielders of late.
The only one we could always rely on was Gini Wijnaldum.
Unfortunately, the Dutchman has joined PSG on a free transfer.
Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain can’t string together more than a few games.
Meanwhile Jordan Henderson keeps picking up injuries big and small.
Fabinho has had his problems here and there, he missed a chunk of action at the start of last season.
We need to sign a midfielder we can rely on to stay fit all season.
Liverpool bid for Nicolo Barella possible
The Reds may be turning their attention to Serie A.
According to La Repubblica, via FC Inter News, Liverpool are prepared to bid for Nicolo Barella.
The Reds are allegedly willing to offer up to £60m for the Italian playmaker, he missed just one game due to injury last season.
The 24-year-old is a star for club and country, impressing fans and pundits alike with his vision and flair.
He scored one and assisted two at the Euros over the summer following a title winning Serie A season where he scored three and assisted seven.
Plenty of Liverpool fans want Barella but not everybody is convinced we’ll stump up the cash.
