According to reports from Corriere dello Sport, Barcelona winger Cristian Tello has rejected transfer offers from Liverpool and Southampton.

The 24-year-old broke into the Barcelona first team back in 2011, going on to bag 20 goals in 86 appearances for the Nou Camp outfit and even claim a cap for the Spanish national team.

But the speedy winger-forward has spent the last two seasons out on loan, spending 18 months with FC Porto before switching to Fiorentina in January.

The Catalans are widely expected to cash-in on Tello this summer and according to Corriere dello Sport, Liverpool and Southampton have both made approaches.

However, they’ve both been knocked back by the Barcelona starlet, who is reportedly only interested in plying his trade with Fiorentina once again next season.

But Viola want to sign Tello on a season-long loan, whereas the La Liga champions are far more keen on a permanent departure – which could give the Reds and the Saints a way back into the race for his signature.
