The 23-year-old has long been considered an exciting prospect at the Nou Camp, but no longer looks to be part of the first-team setup under new manager Luis Enrique, who took over this summer.

With the likes of Dani Alves, Adriano and Douglas all seemingly ahead of Montoya in the pecking order at the moment, the Spanish international is looking for an exit from the club, with his agent talking up interest from Premier League clubs.

Still, Juventus are currently thought to be in pole position to sign the player, with manager Massimiliano Allegri keen to bring in his own players after inheriting a squad from Antonio Conte late on in the summer transfer window.

His agent Juan De Dios Carrasco has confirmed a likely exit for his client, saying: “He will leave the club in January, there are clubs interested. In England, Italy and Germany.”
