Liverpool are ready to pounce for stroppy Barcelona winger Cristian Tello. The Mirror says Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has been given the green light to sign Tello.

Tello, a long term Liverpool target, infuriated Barcelona at the weekend after a row with coach Tato Martino which was captured on TV.

That has prompted them to sell Tello who is valued at around £8m with Liverpool his likely destination.
