After signing Ozil, it was evident that Arsenal are due to add to their squad as they haven’t filled in some of the positions which are necessary. A world class striker and a defensive midfielder were all due but they missed out on their primary targets. Now Bacary Sagna is ageing and has lost out his real touch. Jenkinson hasn’t been into his top form. A signing of Montoya’s class would give Arsenal a real boost.
Arsenal have been given fresh hope of signing Barcelona defender Martin Montoya after his agent suggested that a free transfer away from Camp Nou is a real possibility.
Both Arsenal and Liverpool were linked with a move for the young Spaniard until he revealed that he was likely to sign a new deal with Barcelona. However, negotiations have since moved slowly, leaving the door open for a free transfer at the end of the season.
According to the player’s agent, Dani Alves is blocking his path to the first team and he thinks that his player is fully ready for any of the biggest challenges.
“For the moment he is under contract with FC Barcelona until the end of the season. However, the contract extension has still not arrived.
We have talked but there is no certainty that Martin Montoya would hold down a first-team spot, because right now Daniel Alves closes the door.
The transfer window is closed, but I can tell you that the contract extension may not be successful.
In the past, Inter Milan, Napoli, Bayer Leverkusen, Dortmund and Liverpool were interested. Anything could happen between now and June.”
