Barella, who could readily strengthen any team he lands in, has been linked with a move to the Premier League numerous times last summer, with Emirates Stadium said to be his new destination.
Having had Mousa Dembele on the sidelines due to long term ankle injury, Italian outlet Calciomercatois reporting that the Spurs have now tagged Barella as the player who can take up his role in Pochettino’s team.
Not owing to anyone, the Italian-born has been able to become a first team starter for Cagliari for over two seasons now, with other European clubs keeping a close eye of the midfielder.

Despite his excitement, the Gunners will still need to cancel out all interests emerging from all Europe including one coming from their most hated rival Tottenham Hotspur , who is now keen on the midfielder.
