Liverpool – top winger in before the weekend?

Various news sources (including this one now) are reporting that Brendan Rodgers has at least one more transfer coup up his sleeve before the league kicks off this weekend. Where did the summer go?

Anyway, Barcelona have a ridiculous number of top players in their ranks who seldom get a game. Cristian Tello has been on the periphery of the squad for some time. At 21 he is still learning his trade but Liverpool sorely need some more quality in wide areas and various media outlets are reporting that The Reds will get the adaptable wide man Tello on loan for a year.

ITV sport says

‘Arsenal had been linked with the exciting 21-year-old forward, but Brendan Rodgers is confident that he will persuade Tello to come to Anfield this week’

In other news, it appears that loyalty within the game isn’t completely dead. Daniel Agger says that he wants to stay at Liverpool despite the riches on offer at Manchester City, who have expressed an interest in the skillful centre back.

Hoorah for Agger. Hoorah!
