Cristian Tello To Liverpool: Why Rodgers Has Been Scouting Barcelona's Mini-Ronaldo

According to the Metro, Liverpool are hoping to sign 22-year old forward Cristian Tello to bolster their squad for Champions League football next season.

Likened by some, including us, to being pretty similar to his near-namesake Cristiano Ronaldo in terms of playing style and physique (if not yet in application), Tello has unfortunately found it hard to break into Martino's superstar front-line.

A deadly finisher and one of the fastest players in Spain, Tello has 10 goals in 41 games in La Liga so far - not a prolific record but with almost 1 in 4, that's pretty darned good for a young player usually only used as a late sub.

With Messi, Neymar, Pedro, and Alexis Sanchez all ahead of him in the Barça pecking order, he's believed to be available for about £8 million. Sounds like a bargain if you ask us...
