Inter eyeing Cagliari youngster

20-year-old midfielder inspired by Inter Milan


Inter Milan beat Cagliari 3-1 away from home over the weekend.

In the process, it looks as if a young member of the Rossoblu has attracted the interest of the Nerazzurri.

Attacking midfielder Nicolo Barella has been scouted by Inter before, and it looks like he’s caught their eye yet again.

Barella has made 14 appearances for Cagliari this season, scoring 2 goals and an assist in the process. The Italian holds an impressive 84.9 percent pass success rate, while averaging 1 key pass per game.

Barella is a very strong tackler, completing his status as an all-around midfielder. The midfielder has a very strong average of 3 tackles per fixture, while picking up an interception on a regular game basis.

The young product of Cagliari is effective once he possesses the ball. He uses his speed and sublime dribbling ability to zoom past opposing defenders.

According to SempreInter, Barella takes inspiration after one of Inter Milan’s greatest players.

Internazionale aren’t the only club in on the developing midfielder. Several sources indicate that A.C. Milan, Juventus, and Liverpool have all garnered interest in Barella.

The Nerazzurri could always get younger in midfield. Adding Barella into the mix could be the prefect fit, especially since he might be chased in January. The price tag wouldn’t be too heavy for Inter. Somewhere around the £8 to 15 million sounds reasonable.

Keep an eye on Barella between now and the next transfer window. Who knows, he could be wearing a Pirelli shirt soon.
