Now, according to Spanish source, Nacional, one of the first objectives of Arne Slot is to hire the services of Barella for Liverpool.

The Catalan media outlet state Liverpool are willing to pay over £51m (60 million euros) to secure the Azzurri star.

The 27-year-old midfielder has won every major title in Italy multiple times and he has regularly started in this term’s Scudetto winning campaign.

In all competitions, the 53-capped Italian has directly contributed in 9 goals under the management of Simone Inzaghi.

The Euro 2020 champion has the quality and the experience to improve any midfield and the report suggests that Liverpool are more likely to get him than Real Madrid.

Under the management of Arne Slot, Feyenoord have not paid an initial fee of more than 9 million euros to sign a player (The Athletic).

So, it is fair to say the Dutch manager is alien to huge figures but that will have to change if he does end up signing for Liverpool, who are one of the biggest clubs in the world.

In your view, should the Reds pay over £51m to finally sign Nicolo Barella?
