Liverpool remain the clear favourites to sign Barcelona youngster
Barcelona forward Christian Tello might have played his last game for the Catalan giants if the rumour mill is to be believed, and the bookies appear to be ready to back the idea that the youngster’s next port of call could be Anfield.
Liverpool are looking to bolster their ranks by signing Spanish forwards this summer as they prepare for the possible departure of Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez, who many believe will be playing in Real Madrid’s white jersey next season. Liverpool have already reportedly had a bid accepted for Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas, and appear keen on adding Christian Tello to the inbound list on Merseyside.
However, despite the Reds being the overwhelming favourites to sign the 21 year old Spaniard, they could face competition from the likes of Atletico Madrid from within Spain and Arsenal and Tottenham in England to sign the talented youngster.
Tello though may opt not to leave the Camp Nou, having signed a new contract with Barcelona this very season, which gives them the right to keep him till 2016. He notched up a creditable 34 appearances for the Blaugrana this season.
