Liverpool line up bid for Barcelona winger – report
Liverpool are interested in signing winger Cristian Tello from Barcelona, say reports
Liverpool are interested in signing Barcelona winger Cristian Tello in the summer transfer window, according to reports.
The Reds are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings as Jurgen Klopp prepares for his first full season in charge at Anfield.
Fiorentina are thought to have an option to sign Tello for £6.3m after his loan deal last season.
However, Spanish publication SPORT is now reporting that Liverpool are interested in bringing Tello to Anfield, and that Fiorentina are keen to negotiate down Barcelona’s asking price.
The same report goes on to say that Klopp is a big fan of the 24-year-old winger, who made 15 appearances in Serie A last season.
Tello has been linked with a move to Anfield in the past but a move has not yet materialised for the winger.
Klopp was appointed as Liverpool’s new manager last October following the sacking of Brendan Rodgers.
