AC Milan look set to rival Liverpool for Cristian Tello with a January bid for the Barcelona winger.
Tello, 21, opened talks over a new contract at the Nou Camp earlier this season but he is yet to reach an agreement.
Liverpool were strongly linked with the youngster during the summer, but failed to bring him to Anfield.
The 21-year-old, who is out of contract next summer, has found the back of the net twice in eight league outings this season, and he is now attracting interest from AC Milan.
Sources in Italy claim the San Siro side are weighing up a £6.5m offer for Tello in January, although they could attempt to lure him to Italy on a free transfer in the summer.
