Brendan Rodgers will look to bring in the 22 year old attacker with Barcelona ready to accept offers of around £12m according to the Daily Mirror.

The Anfield boss is looking to bring in supporting options to boost his attack and Tello may well be the ideal man for the job. The youngster has impressed when called upon by the Nou Camp side but his first team chances at Barcelona are greatly limited.

Tello has managed just two La Liga starts this term with the arrival last summer of Neymar and the excellent form shown by Chilean Alexis Sanchez have restricted the adaptable forward’s chances to impress under boss Gerardo Martino and a move to Liverpool may well tempt the Spanish international.

Rodgers is looking to bring in a wide attacker with loaned in Chelsea man Victor Moses likely to be heading back to Stamford Bridge after a poor campaign and a move for Tello could well lead to the exits of Iago Aspas and Fabio Borini.
