Inter midfielder Nicolo Barella has lacked very little in his game this season, but one aspect where he could yet improve is in becoming more clinical in front of goal.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who argue that the 24-year-old must aim to complete his game by scoring more often.
Barella has hardly lacked in the creative department this season, with his assist tally having risen to eight, while he is a regular contributor in possession and in building up the moves that lead to goals.
This is in addition to the 24-year-old’s workrate and defensive qualities which are an important part of the Nerazzurri’s midfield structure.
However, Barella has found the back of the net only once this season in all competitions, getting on the scoresheet in the Nerazzurri’s 6-1 rout of Bologna back in September.
If the midfielder can find a few more goals and take the chances that fall to him, in addition to all his other contributions on the pitch, then the Nerazzurri’s already prolific attack could hit another level.
