Martin Montoya set for January Nou Camp exit.
Arsenal have been handed a timely boost in the transfer market with the news that reported right back target Martin Montoya is set to leave Barcelona in January, report the Daily Star, with the player’s agent having confirmed that his client is keen to move on.
Both Arsenal and their bitter Premier League rivals Liverpool, as well as clubs from Italy, have been linked with a move for the 23 year-old Spaniard over recent days after reports surfaced suggesting that Montoya was keen to depart the Nou Camp in a search for increased first team opportunities.
This is something that has now been confirmed by his agent – quotes that will be music to the ears of fans hoping that their teams can strengthen at full back:
“Luis Enrique has told him that he will find it difficult to dislodge Dani Alves and Douglas. Within the system, there’s just no place for him; he had thought that he might win the right-back slot from Dani Alves.”
