Liverpool fans react as Klopp eyes Barella move

Loads of Liverpool fans have been reacting to some promising transfer news, as the Reds are reportedly eyeing a deal for Italy starlet Nicolo Barella.

According to Football Italia, Liverpool are leading the race to sign Barella, who has been in sensational form for Cagliari this season.

The 21-year-old midfielder would reportedly cost around €50m (£44m), but the Reds are keen to push through a deal.

Philippe Coutinho of course left Anfield in January, and the club has been searching for a creative midfield player ever since.

Nabil Fekir was of course supposed to be the solution, but a deal for the Lyon skipper fell through on the eve of the World Cup.

Players like Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum aren’t known primarily for their work rate, and Klopp’s side have struggled to break teams down at times this season.

Barella is silky smooth on the ball, a great set-piece taker, and also has the work rate and attitude to fit Klopp’s high-tempo style, averaging 2.6 tackles and 2.1 interceptions per game this season.

Lots of fans have been giving their verdict on the Italian wonderkid, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
