The forward has been linked with Liverpool among several other English sides and his current deal is set to expire next summer.
But Tello has in the past made it clear he does not want to leave Barcelona and he has now confirmed his agent is in talks with the Spanish giants over a new contract.
The 21-year-old said in Marca: "The contract renewal is going well. Barca are in talks with my agent and I hope it's a done deal soon."
Tello is a product of Barcelona's successful Academy and he has developed into a first-team regular since making his debut in November 2011.
