Punters in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking up at our landlord who has just read in Metro that Liverpool are in line to land a Barcelona star.
The player in question is Martin Montoya who is determined to leave the Camp Nou in search of regular first team opportunities.
The Barca right back will not be short of offers with clubs from Serie A and the Bundesliga also keen on landing the 23-year-old.
His agent spoke about Montoya’s future and claimed: “100 per cent he will leave Barcelona in the winter. Right now we just have to find the best club for Martin’s progression.
“Germany, England and Italy have clubs that are already preparing to incorporate him.
“I cannot say much at this moment. Next week we will meet with Barcelona to decide Martin’s future.”
As our Reds regulars note over a pint, they seem to think that the right back could be an ideal choice to replace Glen Johnson and from what we have seen, Montoya is actually a far better player than the former England international.
Liverpool fans. Is Montoya someone you should be looking at signing or are there better players out there? Let us know your thoughts below.
