La Liga

Liverpool to go tooth and nail with AC Milan in transfer race

Cristian Tello

Liverpool fans are discussing who they may sign with their Champions League budget in the Football Transfer Tavern today.

This is when news filters through from talkSPORT that one previous target may be allowed to leave Barcelona this summer.

Barcelona winger Cristian Tello has been consistently linked with a move to Anfield over the past few transfer windows, but now reports suggest he may finally leave if a club is willing to offer £8 million for his services.

The 22-year-old has found regular first team football hard to come by at the Camp Nou, with 17 of his 19 La Liga appearances this season coming from the bench.

Brendan Rodgers is a known admirer of the pacy wideman, and tried to sign him on loan in the last January transfer window.

Tello has scheduled a meeting with Barcelona officials for the end of the season, in which he is expected to be told he will be allowed to leave for the right price.

However, the Reds may face competition for his signature from Italian giants AC Milan, with sources in Italy suggesting that the San Siro club have already had tentative talks with the player’s agent over the possibility of a summer transfer.
