Liverpool Want Tello In Exchange For Reina

Liverpool is set to demand Cristian Tello in exchange for Pepe Reina should Barcelona coming knocking in the summer, according to reports.

The Mirror reports that Barca are keen to land Reina this summer with Victor Valdes reluctant to sign a new deal at the Nou Camp and says that Rodgers will only listen to their advances if Tello is up for grabs.

Tello, regarded as a coming man in Spanish football, can operate both as a central striker or wide attacking player - exactly the versatile sort of forward Rodgers is looking to recruit for the Reds this summer.

The 21-year-old has a release clause in his contract priced at around £8.5million, and, after failing to force his way into the starting line-up at Barca on a regular basis this season, will seriously consider his options in the summer.

Barcelona have indicated they are ready to spend as much as £10m to ensure they bring Reina back to a club he graced as a youngster.

They also say a the deal is likely to be decided by Tello depending on where he sees his future after just 11 starts this campaign.
