Midfielder eyed

Liverpool showed an ‘interest’ in signing Inter Milan midfielder Nicolo Barella in the last transfer window, according to a report by CaughtOffside, with Chelsea and Newcastle United also said to have been in the frame. The Italy international, who has 45 caps under his belt to date, ended up staying at the San Siro beyond the deadline.

He has been on the books of his current club since joining them back in 2020 from Cagliari and has become one of their most prized assets in the middle of the park. The 26-year-old helped them reach the Champions League final last season but they were beaten in Istanbul by Manchester City in the end.

Target moves elsewhere

Liverpool-linked Trevan Sanusi has joined fellow top flight club Newcastle instead from Birmingham City in the Championship. The Daily Mail reported in July that Jurgen Klopp’s side were monitoring his situation along with the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur.

However, the Toon Army have won the race for his signature ahead of their league rivals. Eddie Howe’s men will see the teenager as one for the future.
