Cristian Tello news

Liverpool, Everton eye Tello deal

Merseyside rivals Liverpool and Everton are desperate to land the services of Barcelona forward Cristian Tello, according to reports.

The 24-year-old joined Porto on a season-long loan over the summer after he struggled to make himself a regular at Camp Nou.

He has since then shown great promise at the Primeira Liga side, and has made it clear that he won't be returning to his parent club at the end of the season.

According to Portuguese source A Bola, several English clubs are known to be keeping tabs on the talented striker who graduated from the famous La Masia academy.

The report adds that the Reds and Toffees may well fight it out for the player's signature next summer.

Tello has notched seven goals for the Dragons this term in spite of not featuring on a regular basis.
