Because of this, it’s believed several Inter players are now considering their futures, including Barella, who has been linked with a move to Liverpool.

That’s according to the Daily Mail, who muse the midfielder could ask to follow Lukaku out of the exit door at the San Siro this summer.

The striker is one of two notable departures at Inter during the ongoing transfer window, with Achraf Hakimi joining Paris Saint-Germain last month.

Reputable Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport claim Liverpool hold ‘concrete interest’ in Barella, but his asking price is said to be more than what the Reds are willing to fork out.
