Transfer Rumour Rater: Cristian Tello to Liverpool in the January Window

Luis Suarez continues to be a one-man strike force on his own at times, but the injury to Daniel Sturridge has left Liverpool looking a little short of firepower in attacking areas.

Quick players who can score goals and play out wide are likely to be targeted in the January transfer window, and that has led to the Reds once again being linked with a move for the Barcelona wide man Cristian Tello.

In September, Ed Malyon of Mirror Football reported that the 22-year-old Spaniard turned down an approach from the Reds ahead of renewing his contract with the Catalan giants, but with the likes of Neymar and Pedro now blocking his route to first-team football under Gerardo Martino, a short-term move could benefit him.

According to Nick Lustig of the Daily Star, Liverpool weren't put off by their summer snub and are ready to go back in for a player who has become frustrated despite making continuous impacts since breaking into the first team in 2011.

Tello would offer incisive play in wide areas and would add to the goals output of a Liverpool team now chiefly relying on Suarez in that area, and he might even consider a loan move to help in his battle to earn a place in Spain's World Cup squad, having made his full international debut in August.

Any deal could well be a real coup for the Reds, and as long as they stay up near the top of the table, they are likely to be able to attract players of Tello's quality.
