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:

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.”
