Hardly a regular at the Nou Camp, the 24-year-old made 11 appearances last season.

With The Guardian revealing that Dani Alves has signed a new contract it looks like Montoya needs to leave to get some game time, and the Daily Telegraph had linked the Reds to his signature.

Montoya is able to pass the ball well and has great technical ability, not least because of his La Masia roots. Would he be a better bet than Clyne?
