Liverpool have received boost in pursuit for Nicolò Barella with Juventus pulling out of the race for the star. The news will come as a huge boost for Jurgen Klopp’s side, as now they seem to be in a pole position to sign the talented youngster.
A report from the respected Italian outlet CalcioMercato has stated that Juventus are no longer interested in Italian as they do not see him as a perfect fit for their midfield. Instead, the Serie A leaders will now either go after Bryan Cristante or Lorenzo Pellegrini.
In January, 90min claimed that Cagliari had slapped a £44m price-tag on the youngster amid his links to both Juventus and Liverpool. The 21-year-old has impressed once again in Serie A from the heart of Cagliari’s midfielder.
However, with still no international caps to his name, it would surely be a huge risk even for the Merseysiders if they were to match the £44m valuation of the star. But it must be admitted that the youngster’s services will be beneficial as he is versatile and can play as a central and attacking midfielder.
