Report gives Chelsea hope of completing £63M signing of Liverpool target that would be perfect in Klopp’s midfield

Liverpool target Nicolo Barella is currently a target for Chelsea, as the London club look to move for the £63M valued midfielder.

The Inter Milan player has caught the eye of many a club in recent seasons as a talented but well-rounded midfielder.

His ability fits almost perfectly with Liverpool’s current style of play and there’s a sense he would be a perfect addition to Jurgen Klopp’s side.

However, Liverpool aren’t the club interested in the services of the 25-year-old.

Latest reports on Barella

Barella has been linked with Chelsea in recent days, with the club apparently ready to mount a bid.

Reports from Italian outlet CalcioMercatoWeb claim that Chelsea are looking to sign Inter’s Nico Barella and have the player on their shortlist.

The Blues also have their eye on Denzel Dumfries – a powerful and quick wing-back.

His contract runs out in 2026, and his current value is £63M meaning whoever does move for him will have to pay a sizeable fee.

Playing style and creativity

Barella, 25, has developed his game to become more of a creator but still loves to adventure forward at any given time.

His 13 assists in Serie A last season were eye-catching, given he wasn’t on set pieces.

Totalling 1.8 key passes per game, 55% duels won and 1.8 tackles per game – he offers an all-round midfield game.

Predominately, he drifts out to the right-hand side of midfield, in what is Jordan Henderson’s position and he could be the perfect replacement.
