Southampton making audacious approach for Barcelona forward Tello

Southampton have reportedly enquired about Barcelona's Cristian Tello.

According to The Sun, the Saints are keen on the 24-year-old forward whose opportunities at Camp Nou have been decimated by the star-studded front three of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.

Tello spent the second half of last season on loan at Fiorentina and it is believed that the Italians want to lure him from Catalonia on a permanent basis.

However, Southampton have thrown their hat in the ring, despite being manager-less following the exit of Ronald Koeman, as they fear Graziano Pelle could follow the Dutchman to Everton.

Tello scored two goals and provided five assists in 15 outings for La Viola after joining temporarily in January.
