The specific report from Italian publication Tuttomercatoweb stated that the Reds are considering a €70m bid for Barella who’s also a top target for rivals Manchester United. Both Manchester United and Liverpool are in the race to sign Barella whose status as been elevated after a successful campaign for both club and country.

Manchester United target Barella was a regular in the Inter Milan XI as the Nerazzuri beat others to win the Italian Serie A title for the first time in many years.

Barella has been established as one of the midfield targets for Liverpool and he was a regular in the Italy midfield that played a big role at the Euro 2020 tournament. The Inter Milan midfielder was an important member of the Italy team that won the tournament.

Barella came through the youth system at Italian Serie A club Cagliari and he went on to make his professional debut for the same team. His quality was appreciated by Inter Milan who signed him initially on a loan deal in 2019 before the move was made permanent last summer.

Liverpool and Manchester United target Barella thrived under Conte at Inter Milan in his two years at the club till date.
