Liverpool won Tottenham convincingly at Wembley Stadium on Saturday afternoon and it appears that they could repeat it in a different version as the club is keen on beating Tottenham to Nicolo Barella’s signature next summer.
The YNWA got a sublime header from Georginio Wijnaldum and a fortunate finish by Roberto Firmino: the Reds believe come 2019 they would sign the Cagliari midfielder ahead of Tottenham.
The 21-year-old midfield maestro is reported as one of Seria A most promising footballer and has shown his mettle in the league campaign so far.
Klopp is hopeful that Nicola Barella will join the likes of Georginio Wijnaldum, Naby Keita, James Milner, Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Oxlade Chamberlain and Adam Lallana in the midfield.
It is believed that the Reds already have a host of options in the midfield which means they really need to convince him to join the competitive team who is yet to settle Fabinho in the starting line-up. Albeit, Tottenham could be his favourite place because they’ve shown how much they need a midfielder owing since they are yet to buy any player this summer.
However, Liverpool have had a strong relationship with the Italian club and has sold defender Ragnar Klavan to Cagliari which means they could request to buy the versatile midfielder due to their relationship.
Should the small but agile player who is already valued for £35 million leave for Anfield, then Klopp will take yet another victory against Mauricio Pochettino as he is not tentative but believes he can pip Spurs to his signature.
