Spanish starlet opens door to Arsenal or Liverpool deal

Barcelona attacker Cristian Tello has alerted a host of Premier League sides by revealing that he could leave the Nou Camp in search of regular first-team football.

The Spanish starlet has been linked with both Arsenal and Liverpool in recent years, but has elected to remain with the Catalan giants.

However, the presence of the likes of Lionel Messi, Pedro, Alexis Sanchez, and Neymar has seen his opportunities limited this term, with injuries also curtailing his impact

Tello says that he is willing to battle for a role in Tata Martino’s set-up for the remainder of the season, but that if he is not featuring on a regular basis by then he will look to move on.

“You wait and see how the season goes and if by the end I do not play what I want, I will raise out,” he is quoted by the Daily Star.

“Taking that step will be quite difficult but I think we appreciate the role of each.

“As the years pass you want the role change and have more minutes.”

Liverpool could revive their interest in the 22-year-old, with Brendan Rodgers thought to be a fan of his abilities, while Arsenal are likely to monitor the situation.
