Liverpool chasing jet heeled Barcelona winger

Liverpool are targeting Barcelona winger Cristian Tello despite his loan spell at Porto, according to the Telegraph.

The 24-year old speedster is currently entering the final six months of his two year loan deal with the Portuguese giants, who are believed to have the option of making it a permanent transfer.

However, emerging reports suggest Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is keen to land the winger as Porto have not yet made a firm decision as to whether they will sign him.

Klopp does not currently have a wealth of natural wide options at Anfield, with youngster Jordon Ibe the only recognised first-team player comfortable in the role.

Since the departures of Raheem Sterling and Lazar Markovic in the summer, the Merseyside giants have only the 20-year old to call on in a natural fit.

That could soon change if Spanish international Tello arrives. The La Masia graduate has seen his career stall somewhat in recent years, but a move to Liverpool could help reignite him.
