Liverpool lead Valencia in chase for Barcelona winger

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are odds-on favourite to sign Barcelona winger Cristian Tello, with La Liga giants Valencia the second most likely side to secure his signature, according to Sky Bet.

The Spain U23 international has been heavily linked with a move away from Camp Nou this January, with the Premier League touted as his most likely destination.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers tried to bring Tello to Anfield during the summer, and is ready to make a renewed bid for his services in the mid-season window.

The 22-year-old has been used sparingly by Gerardo Martino at Barcelona this season, starting just two games for the Spanish champions prior to the winter break.

Liverpool are currently priced at 1/3 to secure Tello's signature this month, with Valencia their nearest rivals at 20/1.

It would suggest that a deal for the talented Spaniard is all but completed, though Liverpool fans should reserve their celebrations until after a formal announcement has been made.

Arsenal have also been mooted as admirers of the wide-man, though they are way out at 50/1 to sign him, while north London rivals Tottenham and Manchester City are even further afield at 66/1.
