Reports in Spain suggest that Liverpool are interested in taking Barcelona midfielder Cristian Tello to Anfield.

The Spaniaish player is still on the books of the Catalan giants, despite not playing for them since 2014.

A two-year-loan at Porto was cut short in January when he went to Fiorentina, also on loan.

However, the 24-year-old is due to return to Barcelona this summer and according to Marca he is expected to be shipped out as soon as Luis Enrique can get some reinforcements in.

The Serie A club are reported to be keen on getting him on board full time but Klopp's reported interest may be see a transfer battle kick off.
