eljero-elia-von-werder-bremenLiverpool are on a spending spree. First, the Reds signed Kolo Toure on a free transfer. Luis Alberto checking in from Sevilla and Iago Aspas completed his move to Anfield yesterday.

Liverpool are ready to rekindle their long-standing interest in Eljero Elia.

According to TalkSport, Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers has set his attention to Elia, currently at Werder Bremen.

Liverpool's interest in the Dutchman dates back to his time at Hamburg but they missed out on him when he signed for Juventus.

Elia moved to Bremen in 2012 for £5million and Rodgers has tracked his progress - with a potential move now in the pipeline.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have yet to agree a deal with Sunderland to sign goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, according to the player's agent.

The two clubs had reportedly agreed a fee in excess of £11million for the Belgium international, who has won 13 caps for his country.

But the 25-year-old's representative, Guy Vandermissen, says he has still not been informed from either club that a deal has been done.

Elsewhere, Liverpool have reportedly agreed to meet the €10m (£8.5million) release clause written into Barcelona attacker Cristian Tello's contract but now must look to persuade the young Spaniard to move to Anfield according to Sport.es.

Barcelona may well be ready to sell a number of their squad players as Tito Vilanova eyes up the purchase of a central defender this summer, having already forked out £48m to sign Brazilian starlet Neymar.

However 21-year-old Tello is apparently leaning towards sticking with Barcelona for at least another season to see if he can force his way into a more prominent role in Vilanova's first team set-up.

The adaptable forward, who can play up front in an central striking role or out wide on either wing, was handed just 12 La Liga starts last term and only two starts in the Champions League but did manage to net eight goals in all competitions.

The arrival of Neymar is sure to leave Tello playing an even more limited role in Tito Vilanova's first team set-up with the locally born Barcelona player already having to challenge the likes of David Villa, Alexis Sanchez, Cesc Fabregas and Pedro for a spot supporting Lionel Messi in the Catalan giant's attack.

Cristian TelloLiverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has continued his search for a wide player since the departure of Dirk Kuyt, Maxi Rodriguez and Craig Bellamy.

According to reports, Liverpool managing director has flown over to Spain to facilitate the signing of Real Madrid midfielder Nuri Sahin and to complete a loan deal for Cristian Tello of Barcelona.

Tello, Spain youth international is out of contract at the end of next season and has been targeted by several clubs, including Valencia and Benfica.

Liverpool would have to pay around £7million to land the winger, who can operate on either flank in an attacking front three, taking his summer spending spree beyond the £30million mark following the arrivals of Fabio Borini and Joe Allen.

But it is understood the new Kop boss would be interested in a season-long loan deal with an option for a permanent contract.

Meanwhile, Liverpool will rival the Gunners for Real Madrid midfielder Nuri Sahin with the Reds looking to capitalise on Rodgers' good relationship with former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.

Real boss Jose Mourinho has given Sahin the green light to leave the Bernebeu after using the battling midfielder only sparingly as an auxiliary left-back during pre-season.

If Cristian Tello and Nuri Sahin moves are legitimate, what about Gaston Ramirez?
