Liverpool are mulling over an offer from Catalan giants Barcelona to sign Spanish attacking duo Pedro and Cristian Tello.
Spanish sources claim that Liverpool have been given first refusal on the highly-rated pair.
And could wrap-up deals sooner rather than later given Spain’s astonishing early exit from the World Cup.
Pedro was selected in Vicente del Bosque’s 23-man squad and featured in the defeats to both Holland and Chile.
But despite Tello having earned a cap for the acclaimed international side, his lack of regular first-team football prevented him from boarding the plane to Rio.The offer of two of Barcelona’s most promising youngsters, both of whom graduated from the legendary La Masia academy, could pre-empt a bid for Luis Suarez.
Rumours have been circulating and gathering momentum that Liverpool’s Uruguayan talisman will head for the Anfield exit this summer, with the Nou Camp being his preferred destination.
And many skeptics are suggesting that the pair are being used as bait to soften the blow of Suarez’s impending departure.It had been reported that the 22-year-old Tello was heading to Liverpool’s rivals across Stanley Park, Everton.
However a move to Goodison Park now appears to have ceased, especially given Brendan Rodgers’ need to strengthen his side with international quality before their Champions League bow.
