Liverpool are reportedly ready to open talks with Barcelona over a deal to sign midfield star Cristian Tello, according to the Metro.
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is keen to bring the player to Anfield as he feels he could become a massively valuable asset to what he is trying to build (via Fichajes).
The 24-year-old is currently on loan with Portuguese giants Porto, but the report suggests that he would be allowed to leave the Nou Camp on a permanent deal next summer.
And Klopp is hopeful of being able to convince him to make the move to Merseyside as he feels he would fit right in to the style of football that he intends to implement once he is able to bring in a few more of his preferred targets.
