Anfield side close in on Nou Camp full-back.
Liverpool are edging closer to the capture of Barcelona right-back Martin Montoya according to the Metro.
The 24 year old is set to leave the Nou Camp and Liverpool’s £7.2m bid appears to be one the Catalan club are ready to accept.
Montoya’s first team chances have been severely limited in recent seasons with Brazilian Dani Alves a first team regular.
Brendan Rodgers sees Montoya as an ideal replacement for Glen Johnson with the experienced England man set to lave Liverpool when his contract expires this summer.
Rodgers may struggle to secure his top targets this summer with the Merseyside outfit unlikely to have Champions League action to offer any prospective targets.
