FC Inter News also state that Antonio Conte’s side want to tie the 16-cap Italy international down to a new contract, given his growing importance to the Serie A giants.

At just 23 years of age, Barella is a fine talent with plenty of room for growth in his career, reinforced by Inter’s efforts to secure his future at the San Siro.

According to Goal, Inter paid Cagliari a guaranteed €37 million (£33.5 million) in the summer of 2019 for the midfielder’s services, in a deal which could reach £45 million in potential add-ons.

The Cagliari-born string-puller has four assists in nine games this season, including a delightful backheel flick to set up Lautaro Martinez against Real Madrid earlier this week.

He would be an excellent signing for Jurgen Klopp.

However, FC Inter News’ report states that Barella is a boyhood Inter fan, so prising him away from the San Siro could potentially be difficult.
