Liverpool and PSG Interested in Inter Ace Midfielder

Inter will risk having to sell one or more center-pieces if they don’t qualify for the Champions League. Denzel Dumfries appears headed to the Premier League, and André Onana is receiving strong interest from England as well. Alessandro Bastoni and Nicolò Barella would be highly profitable if made available. Their sales would be the last resort for Nerazzurri.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Liverpool and PSG have been watching the midfielder. The former plot to sign one or two players in the role. They have several options on their shortlist. They reportedly withdrew from the Jude Bellingham race due to his lofty price tag.

Barella recently drew praise from Reds legend Jamie Carragher after his recent Champions League heroics. The English side is eyeing a heap of high-profile targets, such as Ryan Gravenberch, Youri Tielemans, Mason Mount, Alexis Mac Allister, and Moises Caicedo.

Instead, the Azzurri staple has a big proponent in Paris in Marco Verratti. The Ligue 1 giants often poached the top Serie A stars in recent years. On the other hand, the 26-year-old has a long-term contract with Inter, which possess plenty of leverage to set a sky-high valuation.

Our Take on Barella

Missing out on future prize money would be costly, but they have gone further than anticipated in Champions League this year, which will soften the blow. They will cash in on somebody, but it probably won’t be necessary to part ways with the heart and soul of the team. If things get really dire financially, Alessandro Bastoni would have more chances of being placed on the chopping block since his deal expires in 2024. Marcelo Brozovic is also more expendable than in the past after an injury-riddled campaign.
