Liverpool are battling it out with Premier League rivals Arsenal for Inter midfielder Nicolo Barella.

The Boot Room cites FC Inter News as claiming that Barella is wanted by a number of clubs, with the Reds and Gunners among them.

Barella, 23, has already collected 16 caps for Italy and has developed into one of the key midfield players under Antonio Conte.

Italy’s 1982 World Cup winner Marco Tardelli is a big fan of the player, declaring:

“He is very good at throwing himself in when there is space, he knows how to be deadly.

“He also has quality, which combines a lot of quantity and often even a healthy unconsciousness.

“I like his values and character, they are typically Sardinian. He has already shown a lot with Inter, I’m sure he will grow and give more and more.”

“On the other hand, perhaps, there is still a bit of anarchy in him. Sometimes he should be more balanced from a tactical point of view. In any case, for being his age, it is all there. We have to wait for him, he will become great.”
