The 23 year old came close to moving to Anfield over the summer but will apparently complete a move to Merseyside in the January transfer window.

Montoya has started just one of Barcelona’s 11 La Liga fixtures this season and will apparently be brought in by Brendan Rodgers to replace Glen Johnson.

Johnson is out of contract next summer and has done little to suggest he’ll get a new deal and Rodgers may well see Montoya as a better option and Liverpool are set to beat Inter Milan in pursuit of the Nou Camp squad player.

Montoya has represented Barcelona since the age of eight and is into his fifth season in the first team set-up but is not a regular under Luis Enrique and would do well to move on before his career stagnates at the Nou Camp.
