Spanish source Sport has reported that Barcelona are willing to sell Liverpool target Cristian Tello for a fee of €10m (£8.1m).

The Daily Mirror have previously stated Liverpool’s interest in the young Barcelona is indeed very real and that asking price may well be too good a valuation to ignore. The 20 year old forced his way into Pep Guardiola’s first team last term, notching up seven goals in 22 appearances in all competitions but according to this source is now apparently available for the price price.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers may well not get the same sort of financial backing that his predecessor Kenny Dalglish received, mainly down to the fact that the £120m spent by the Scot only resulted in the Merseyside club moving further away from the coveted top four, and a move for the young Spaniard may well therefore be a very good bit of business.

Tello can play out on the flank, where both Stewart Downing and Jordan Henderson have failed to impress on the left and right wings respectively, and the Barcelona starlet can also play as an orthodox striker and that level of adaptability is sure to interest Rodgers.

This source reports that a number of other La Liga sides are interested in the Spanish Under 21 international but the chance to kick-start his career in the Premier League may well prove very tempting.
