Liverpool linked with Nicolo Barella
Gini Wijnaldum played more minutes than any other player under Jürgen Klopp.
His exit has left us needing reinforcements in the centre of the park.
According to La Repubblica, via FC Inter News, Liverpool hold an interest in Nicolo Barella.
The report goes as far as to claim that the Reds are prepping a bid of around £60m for the creative midfielder.
Chelsea signing Lukaku could trigger exodus
The coming days will see Chelsea finalise a deal to re-sign Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan.
The Mail has reported that the £98m move should go off without a hitch, seeing the Belgian return to Stamford Bridge with a point to prove.
In a separate report The Mail has claimed that the striker’s departure could trigger an exodus from Inter.
A host of players are said to be worried by the forward’s exit, coupled with the sale of Achraf Hakimi.
It’s claimed that Nicolo Barella could push for a move away, concerned about how competitive Inter can be without their key striker.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool signing Barella would be exciting and this Lukaku deal could help facilitate the move.
It’s looking like the last days of Rome in Milan currently.
The club are in disarray financially, hence all of the sales.
The likes of Nicolo Barella won’t want to go down with a sinking ship, fingers crossed Michael Edwards will offer the playmaker a lifeboat.
