Barcelona's Cristian Tello has options if Fiorentina don't extend stay - agent

The agent of Fiorentina's Cristian Tello has said the midfielder has plenty of options should the Serie A club not make his loan move from Barcelona permanent this summer.

Tello, 25, joined Fiorentina on a season-long loan last year and he has been a regular in Paulo Sousa's team this season, scoring three in 29 Serie A appearances.

Tello's agent, Maria Orobitg, told La Nazione: "Fiorentina need to decide whether they want to take their option on buying him for a set fee. I'm neither optimistic nor pessimistic. I've received a few calls from some interested clubs in Europe and from one Italian club.

"In the event that Fiorentina and Barcelona do not reach an agreement, he will go back to Barca, with whom he still has a contract. Tello is happy at Fiorentina and he would be happy to be able to carry on playing in Florence."

Fiorentina are currently eighth in Serie A, seven points adrift of fifth-placed Atalanta and a place in the Europa League next season -- a competition for which they have qualified in each of the past three campaigns.
