The January transfer window is just four days away and the rumour mill has started to turn.

Since the summer, Liverpool have been linked with a multitude of players in order to improve their squad.

After last seasons dismal performance across all competitions, The Reds are seemingly out for vengeance this time around.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have only lost one Premier League game thus far, the least of any team in England’s top flight.

Whether that be because of the new additions Klopp made over the summer or the tactical changes that have been made, there is no doubt that Liverpool are serious Premier League title contenders.

The Reds currently sit atop of the Premier League table on 42 points.

Arsenal are the next closest side to the Anfield club on 40 points. Making The Gunners Liverpool’s closest title rivals at the time of writing.

In order to strengthen their chances of winning the Premier League title, Klopp will likely look towards the transfer market for reinforcements.

According to a report from L’Interista, as summarised by TEAMtalk Inter Milan ‘may not have the strength to say no‘ to a ‘monstrous offer‘ for Nicolo Barella.

Barella has been consistently linked with Liverpool since 2020.

Klopp himself has even spoken on the quality Barella possesses meaning that the Italy international has already been looked at by Liverpool’s staff.

The report does however, state that Inter Milan would prefer to keep the midfielder at the club.

However, due to the financial issues within Italian football at the moment, their bargaining position is weakened.

The 26-year-old’s contract runs out in 2026 but ‘Inter hope to tack on an additional two years to Barella’s existing contract‘ in order to up their asking fee for him.

This would allow them to strengthen their position and ensure that, if Barella does leave, they will be able to dictate how much for.
