Reds set to sign Tello this summer…
Read more Liverpool transfer news.
Liverpool have moved a step closer to signing Barcelona’s Spanish star Cristian Tello, reports the Mirror.
The 22-year-old mainly features for the Catalan giants from the bench, but has still notched 20 goals for the side he made his debut for in 2011.
Reports are emanating from Spain that he’s fallen out with manager Tata Martino, and the Barcelona boss is willing to offload him for around £8m – which for a player of Tello’s unquestionable talent – is a potential bargain.
Tello is an excellent dribbler, and prides himself on his ability to cut in from the left flank and shoot on his right foot.
Liverpool want to strengthen this summer, with a Champions League campaign set to begin next season. While the current batch of attackers have enjoyed a brilliant season, Brendan Rodgers has little in terms of backup options.
