Liverpool could be set to ramp up their interest in Martin Montoya after the right-back’s agent claimed that he is set to leave Barcelona in January.

The defender is thought to be frustrated with his situation at Camp Nou, with the 23-year-old having been limited to just a single La Liga start for Spanish side this season.

And the Spaniard’s representative has now revealed that Montoya is close to a move away, with a number of clubs from Europe’s top leagues interested in his services.

“Tomorrow there will be a summit with Barcelona to communicate a decision we have already made,” agent Juan de Dios Carrasco told

“We will leave the club in January, there are interested clubs from England, Italy and Germany.

“Montoya wants to leave Barcelona and thinks the club is a gentleman and will respect the agreement that he can leave.”
