The 22 year old has struggled to secure regular first team action under boss Gerardo Martino and could well be ready to leave the Nou Camp.

Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers is known to be a fan of the adaptable forward and has been told that a fee in the region of £8m will secure his services.

AC Milan are also tracking Tello but a move to join Premier League table topping Liverpool will surely be more of a temptation, not least as the San Siro side will not be playing in the Champions League next term.

Tello racked up eight goals in both 2011/12 and 2012/13 but has barely had a look in this season, making just two La Liga starts.

Rodgers may wish to use Tello as a part of a three pronged Liverpool attack alongside goal machines Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge.

Liverpool could opt to offload Fabio Borini and Iago Aspas to make room for Tello.
