Liverpool ready to snatch impressive Barcelona winger

Cristian Tello Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have endured a topsy-turvy season and they’ve made it quite clear they want to find some level footing in 2016, as they discuss what signings they want to be made over a few pints.

Glasses were raised in celebration after they read reports that indicate an impressive deal is on the cards, with Mundo Deportivo stating Liverpool are ready to beat Porto to the signature of Cristian Tello.

The talented wide-man is in the second-year of his loan with Porto and his agreement with parent club Barcelona is that the move can be made permanent for an agreed price of £9m.

However, Porto are dragging their heels in regards to a permanent deal and Jurgen Klopp wants to jump to the front of the queue for the 24-year-old, who was very highly-rated in his youth days at Barcelona.

Competition for places in Catalonia forced his exit though and Tello will be available for a cut-price, which would present a shrewd piece of business for Klopp.

Liverpool fans, would you welcome Tello at your club? Let us know in the comments below!
