Liverpool are demanding players in Barcelona's offer for Pepe Reina. The Mirror says Liverpool will demand exciting young striker Christian Tello in exchange for Barcelona target Reina.

The Spanish giants believe the knowledge and experience of former Nou Camp starlet Reina make him the perfect candidate to replace their first-choice goalkeeper Victor Valdes, who is expected to leave the club in the summer.

Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers has consistently maintained he doesn't want to lose the Spanish international, but he would be prepared to listen if Barca throw Spain Under-21 forward Tello into the mix.

Tello, regarded as a coming man in Spanish football, can operate both as a central striker or wide attacking player - exactly the versatile sort of forward Rodgers is looking to recruit for the Reds this summer.
