Liverpool are still interested in two Inter Milan players this summer. According to Italian news outlet Leggo, the Reds are interested in centre-back Alessandro Bastoni. While Nicolo Barella is also on Liverpool’s radar.
Were Liverpool to sign both Bastoni and Barella, it would set the Reds back around £103.5m. The chances of the club paying that kind of money on two players may not be that likely.
It’s thought Inter have been keen to extend Barella’s contract, reportedly worth nearly £2m a year, beyond 2024. But if Liverpool or other suitor matched Inter’s valuation they might be persuaded to cash in – and so ease their financial problems in one hit.
