Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Cristian Tello transfer talk

Cristian Tello

Cristian Tello has been linked to Liverpool... again.

Liverpool have been linked to Barcelona winger Cristian Tello, a player they were linked with signing two years ago.

Spanish newspaper Marca report the Reds are rivally Fiorentina for his signature, and bring it up to date by insisting current Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is a fan of the player.

This claim may have some credibility to it with German newspaper BILD reporting in 2013 that Klopp's Borussia Dortmund were interested in the player.

Tello has been out on loan after the past two years, for 18 months at Porto and the last six with Fiorentina.

Breaking into the Barcelona first team will be far from easy for him, and to add to his one Spanish international cap he will need to move on.

Liverpool have a need for wide players, but Tello still remains very much an unknown quantity, and would be a gamble for the Reds, although potentially a cheap one.

The club may be better off trying to realise their investment in Lazar Markovic, sent on loan over the past year, rather than adding Tello.
