Barcelona interested in Inter midfielder Nicolo Barella

Barcelona have set their sights on talented Inter midfielder Nicolo Barella, Corriere dello Sport claims.

Barella, 23, has flourished under the tutelage of Antonio Conte since arriving from Cagliari last year.

And it’s reported that along with Lautaro Martinez, Barella is a ‘dream’ for Barcelona who are big fans of the 12-time Italian international.

Prior to their 8-2 humiliation at the hands of Bayern Munich, Barca were in close contact with Barella’s agent.

And according to CdS, their interest was received with ‘great satisfaction’ by Barella’s camp.

The idea of playing alongside Lionel Messi in particular excites Barella, not to mention the big salary he would be offered.

Despite their interest, Barcelona have yet to make any sort of offer for Barella.

The Catalan club’s focus before making official approaches for targets is to sell some players.

Barella has made 39 appearances for Inter this term, scoring four goals and delivering seven assists.
