Liverpool set to finally win race to sign Barcelona ace?

Martin MontoyaLiverpool fans inside the Football Transfer Tavern are off to the bar to get another lager, after hearing from the Express that they are considering a summer move for Barcelona full-back Martin Montoya.

The 23-year-old is seemingly not in the first-team plans at Barcelona, and Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is hoping the lure of regular first-team Premier League football will tempt him to Liverpool.

Liverpool fans inside the Football Transfer Tavern feel ecstatic with this news, as it means that Glen Johnson is most likely to leave for pastures new.

Roma is set to be the destination for Johnson, who has been ousted from the starting line-up more often that not in the Reds side so far this season.

Montoya has been an ever-present figure in the Spain national side’s youth setup, having played from under-17 level all the way up to under-23 level.

The Barcelona defender would join fellow Spanish full-back Alberto Moreno at the Merseyside outfit.

Liverpool fans…. Would you be happy to see this Barcelona star replace Glen Johnson? Is Johnson now past his sell by date at Anfield? Let us know your feelings and opinions in the comments below!
