LeBron James: How LA Lakers icon could help Liverpool sign young Serie A star | Football | Sport


The midfielder was linked with a move away from the Italian side in the summer but stayed put.

And he’s admitted he would be keen on a switch to England and it sounds like he’d favour Liverpool because of their connections with NBA star LeBron James.

He told Gazzetta dello Sport: “Cagliari received offers and turned them down. I am happy to have remained with the club I support.

“If I had to choose between Serie A and the Premier League, I’d go for England, because I like the way they approach the game. Plus everyone there is just as irritable and prone to fouls as me!

“My dream is to get a nice house with a garden and a pool. And to meet LeBron James.”

James, who joined the Los Angeles Lakers this summer, owns a 2% stake in the Anfield club which he purchased for $6.5m in 2011.

Liverpool were linked with the 21-year-old in the summer after he emerged as a young star in the Serie A.

Barella scored the only goal in the 1-0 over Atalanta in their last match and is likely to play against AC Milan today.

He scored six times last season and is an Italy under 21 international.

Liverpool have started the season well winning all five Premier League games so far, only trailing Chelsea on goal difference.

Jurgen Klopp spent big this summer after reaching the Champions League final by signing Alisson Becker, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Naby Keita.
