Some Liverpool fans want Reds to sign £80k-a-week star who's 'better than Saul'
Some Liverpool fans have welcomed speculation linking the Reds with Nicolo Barella.
According to a report in Tuttomercatoweb, Liverpool are looking to make a £60million bid for the Euro 2020 winner.
The Italian outlet claims the Reds are keen “above all” to sign Barella, with Manchester United also linked.
Liverpool currently have a large hole in their midfield following Georginio Wijnaldum’s departure on a free transfer.
Barella has enjoyed a stunning season, winning the Serie A title with Inter Milan and then helping Italy to the European Championship.
And some Liverpool fans would be excited to see the 24-year-old join the Reds:

Liverpool need to go hard and fast for Barella #lfc— earl (@kloppsbeer) July 14, 2021
But I genuinely believe Barella would be the best option or Renato Sanches. #LFC— Sidhaanth (@Liverpo33171752) July 14, 2021
Barella or Renato sanches— * (@AkilanTweets) July 14, 2021
Olmo or malan
Make this happen @LFC
The fact we supposedly offered 32m for Saul I just can’t see us offering 60-70m for Barella but what a signing he would be🙏🏽🙏🏽— Mark (@Marklfc10Mark) July 14, 2021
Barella only joined Inter last year, but he has made a big impact in black and blue.
The £80,000-a-week ace made 36 league appearances, scoring three goals and registering nine assists.
In 2018, Italy legend Andrea Pirlo said of Barella, as quoted by the Daily Mail: “He is one of the best players in Italy.
“So in the national team he has to play.”
