After a summer which saw Liverpool break the then record fee for a goalkeeper on Alisson, bring in two midfielders in Fabinho and Naby Keita while also adding depth with Xherdan Shaqiri, the Reds were viewed as Man City’s main rivals for the title and so far they’ve lived up to that.
So far Liverpool have been outstanding as they’ve won all six of their league games while scoring 14 and only conceding two. Now Liverpool have arguably one of the best starting XI’s in the league but could still do with a few players who could add some quality depth to the squad.
According to Calciomercato, Liverpool are ready to bid for Cagliari star midfielder, Nicolo Barella after Juventus failed to sign the youngster over the summer.
A dynamic midfielder, Barella would be ideally suited in Klopp’s high tempo style of play and could easily be a backup to Naby Keita or James Milner. A midfielder who scored six goals in 34 games for Cagliari last season, Barella can also play further forward as an attacking midfielder or even as a defensive midfielder.
Cagliari are holding out for £31 million for the midfielder who had attracted interest from Roma, Inter and Juventus. It may be hard to attract the young midfielder to a side where he’d be a backup but over the next few years, he could turn into one of the better players in the league and one who could provide Klopp with a very useful player.
