Liverpool transfer news: Reds set sights on Bellingham alternative

Liverpool set sights on Inter Milan midfielder following Bellingham disappointment

Liverpool set sights on Inter Milan midfielder after being priced out of Bellingham deal

Liverpool may have been priced out of a move for Jude Bellingham this summer, but the Reds are still preparing a huge package in order to bring Nicolo Barella to the club, according to Sport Mediaset.

The Reds see a move for Barella as a cheaper alternative to Bellingham, with the Italian midfielder costing half the price.

However, it could still be an expensive signing for the Anfield giants, with Inter reportedly asking for a fee in the region of $80 million.

Liverpool will be desperately looking to upgrade their options in the middle of the park this summer, as they have lacked quality in midfield throughout the season. Barella certainly appears a solid option, having won Serie A with Inter, as well as the European Championships with Italy.

The 26-year-old is an excellent ball-winning midfielder and his passing ranks amongst the best in Europe. So far this season, he has played 30 times in Serie A for Inter, scoring five goals and registering six assists.
