In February 2022, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp referred to Inter Milan midfielder Nicolo Barella as “a really good player” who “has all the things that you want from a midfield player” on the club’s official YouTube channel. According to Il Messaggero, Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Barella.
Nicolo Barella of Inter Milan is a midfield target for Tottenham Hotspur
According to the Italian daily, Tottenham are considering signing two players from Inter, the previous club of Spurs head coach Antonio Conte.
One is the defender Milan Skriniar, and the other is midfielder Barella, a 25-year-old international for Italy.
Liverpool has also been linked to the Inter star, with CMW reporting in June that Liverpool might give Naby Keita in exchange for Barella in a player-plus-cash deal.

Could there be a move to Spurs?
In our view, Nicolo Barella’s probable summer transfer from Inter Milan to Tottenham Hotspur may not materialise.
Yes, money talks, but would Tottenham be ready to pay close to £80 million on a midfielder this summer when they do not need to, especially one as brilliant as Barella who is “aggressive,” “technical,” and “can run for ages”?
The primary midfield possibilities for Conte are Rodrigo Bentancur, Yves Bissouma, Oliver Skipp, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, and
Additionally, Spurs now have Pape Matar Sarr, a young player.
