Cristian Tello a target for three Premier League clubs

Published Add your comment

Tottenham, Liverpool and Everton all want to sign Barcelona winger Cristian Tello on loan this summer.

According to reports in Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo, Tottenham and Liverpool are interested in taking Tello next season, with the flying young winger unlikely to break the first-team following the addition of Neymar last summer.

But while the Daily Star carries the same report, it notes that Everton hold the edge over Spurs and Liverpool thanks to their manager, Roberto Martinez.

The Spaniard has a close relationship with officials at the Nou Camp, and took another highly rated Barca starlet, Gerard Deulofeu, on loan to Goodison Park last term.

Deulofeu battled injury problems but was excellent when he managed to get on the pitch. And Everton hope to be able to work out another agreement with Barca for Tello.

They used the loan market well to secure the signings of Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea and Gareth Barry from Manchester City as well. And they battled the top sides for much of the season, briefly threatening to crack the top four before fading at the end of the campaign.

But with Tottenham and Liverpool also interested, Everton may struggle to replicate that loan market success next season. Liverpool can offer Champions League football, while Tottenham under new boss Mauricio Pochettino should be an attractive, attacking team next term and perfect for the pacy style of Tello.
