Inter will look to secure the future of midfielder Nicolo Barella, with the club set to begin talks to extend his contract.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that renewing with the 24-year-old is a priority for CEO Beppe Marotta and Sporting Director Piero Ausilio amid interest from major European clubs in the player.
Barella’s current deal runs until the end of June 2024, but the club want to pen a new deal with him to ward off interest in him, and could offer to double his wages to a net of €5 million per season, to reward his performances and keep him happy at the club.
The midfielder, who joined from Cagliari in the summer of 2019, is a target for clubs in the Premier League, with Liverpool in particular interested in his signature, but the Nerazzurri want to be clear on his long-term commitment.
Once the club has wrapped up renewal talks with striker Lautaro Martinez they could quickly move on to Barella.
