Graham Potter wants Nicolo Barella at Chelsea in the winter transfer window. The new Chelsea boss wants to improve his midfield options, and Barella is one of the best young midfielders in Europe. The former Brighton manager took over Thomas Tuchel recently and is looking to improve the squad according to his needs. He needs a technical and creative midfielder to help Chelsea in their attack. Also, Barella has experience playing in the back three systems, so it will be easier for him to adjust.
Liverpool are also looking for a midfielder as they are struggling with injuries. Thiago came back to the team, but the Reds lack depth and quality. Klopp has high ambitions, and he will need a quality midfield to achieve them. They have struggled in Premier League so far, and Napoli thrashed them 4-0 in the Champions League. So they are looking to invest in a quality and right midfielder in January. Jurgen Klopp wants a perfect player that can settle into his side seamlessly. Barella has all the attributes to do so, however, he lacks physicality.
Graham Potter wants Barella, Antonio Conte also keen
The former Inter manager is an admirer of Nicolo Barella. He is looking to provide something different to his midfield three. Spurs lack a creative midfielder, who can progress the ball, and open defenses. Harry Kane has to drop to provide the creativity, which leaves space in the box. The Italian manager has already brought Perisic from Inter and will like to accompany him with Nicolo Barella.
However, Barella is in the future plans of Inter Milan. The Nerazzurri see him as a future captain and an irreplaceable midfielder. Barella provides the drive and creativity in Inter’s midfield. Also, it will be tough to replace the Italian midfielder in the winter transfer window.
