Liverpool eye £115m swoop for 'world-class' midfielder & World Cup winner

Liverpool are reportedly plotting a double swoop to sign Inter Milan midfielder Nicolo Barella and Brighton & Hove Albion star Alexis Mac Allister.

According to Inter Live, the Reds are planning a €130m (£115m) shopping spree to sign the two players as Liverpool look to overhaul their midfield options, with Barella and Mac Allister both targets for the Anfield side heading into the summer transfer window.

Having pulled out of the race to sign Jude Bellingham due to financial reasons, Liverpool are now targeting cheaper options in the market as Jurgen Klopp looks to bring in at least two quality central midfielders to change the dynamic of the squad, with Barella and Mac Allister on the shortlist.

Lauded as ‘world-class’ by Steven Gerrard, Barella has been one of Inter and Italy’s most important players in recent years, though the 26-year-old could now leave the San Siro with the Nerazzuri keen to raise some funds to help fight their ongoing financial problems.

As a result, the Italian maestro could be available at a cheaper price than Mac Allister, who played a key role in Argentina winning the 2022 FIFA World Cup and has since gone on to become one of the best midfielders in the Premier League under Roberto De Zerbi at Brighton.

Everyone and their mother is aware of Liverpool’s midfield issues, with the Reds in need of lowering the age of the position as well as finding some fresh faces to a core of names that have needed changing for some time, and signing Mac Allister and Barella could change the Anfield side for the better.

The duo are some of the best in the business and could both be up for moving to Liverpool if the Merseyside giants are willing to match Inter and Brighton’s asking prices, and for Klopp, he could have a new midfield for years to come for the price of one Bellingham if the Reds can play their cards right.
