Liverpool Ready To Make Move For Christian Tello

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is keen to make Barcelona's promising forward Christian Tello his first summer signing.

The Reds appear to be locked in a three-way battle for Tello's signature with Spurs also in the frame.

The Reds tried to sign Tello last summer, but they failed to broker a deal.

Liverpool defender Daniel Agger insisted yesterday the club need to add more quality up front to make them a more potent attacking force.

Though they moved quickly for Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho in January, Rodgers needs cover for Luis Suarez, who was banned for 10 matches for biting Branislav Ivanovic.

Spanish paper Marca suggests Liverpool should have no problem meeting his £8.4m release clause.

The only potential obstacle to a deal, they note is if Isaac Cuenca decides to stay at Ajax where he is currently on loan.

Tello who has been on the fringes of the La Liga champions-in-waiting has still contributed eight goals this campaign.
