'There’s nothing’: Romano deals transfer blow to Liverpool, club view reported target as ‘untouchable’

Liverpool have been dealt a blow in their pursuit for reported transfer target and Euro 2020 winner Nicolo Barella.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the Reds have not attempted to sign the Inter Milan maestro. Manchester United were also reportedly eager on Barella.

Furthermore, the Serie A side have zero interest in selling Barella this summer. Romelu Lukaku is also up for sale, with Chelsea and Manchester City keen on the Belgian international this window.

The Sky Italia journalist tweeted: “There’s nothing going on between Manchester United or Liverpool with Inter to sign Nicolo Barella. He’s not for sale this summer, Inter consider Barella ‘untouchable’ despite rumours.”

Indeed, Liverpool need a player who can replace Wijnaldum this summer. However, Barella appears to be off the table for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

With the midfielder a key part to Inter’s title-winning season and Italy’s Euro 2020 triumph, it is understandable why Liverpool would be interested in Barella.

However, the Reds will seemingly have to wait if they are to attempt to sign the Italian international.
