Liverpool invested heavily into their midfield over the summer, signing four new players.

The Reds’ midfield has been a problem area for some time, whether that be because of injuries or poor form.

However, new additions Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai have hit the ground running with their new club.

The pair have mustered up a total of three goal contributions thus far.

However, their goalscoring ability should not be the only measure of success.

The duo have added stability to the side and allowed the attackers to be more expressive and make more clinical runs.

However Jurgen Klopp isn’t reportedly stopping at just the four new signings.

Calcio Mercato have reported that Liverpool are a ‘paticular’ club looking to make an ‘important proposal’ for Inter Milan star, Nicolo Barella.

The 26-year-old is in the percent age range for Klopp signing and would help stabilise the defensive midfield position within The Reds’ squad.

Transfermarkt currently rate the player at around £65.2million, so if a deal is made, it won’t be cheap.

However, one thing that may benefit Klopp’s chances of acquiring the midfielder is the financial woes they are currently facing.

This isn’t the first time Liverpool have been linked with the midfielder, as his name often popped up when moves were spoken about.

The Independent’s Miguel Delaney claimed Liverpool were vying for the transfer of the midfielder.

He claimed that The Reds ‘feel his energy fits with exactly what they want from a second midfielder to complement Alexis Mac Allister.’

A player of Barella’s quality rarely becomes available and it would certainly show Klopp means business.

In addition, Klopp himself has made his admiration for Barella known as in February 2022, following the Inter vs Liverpool matchup the German stated, “He’s a really good player, a really good player, and I like him a lot.”

“He has all the things you want from a midfield player: he is aggressive, he is technical, he can run for ages and all these kinds of things. That’s a top-class player.”

There will likely be much more information on this move in the lead up to the January transfer window as the rumours aren’t likely to settle any time soon.
