Liverpool Face Battle With Inter Milan For Barcelona Defender

Liverpool face a battle with Inter Milan to clinch the signing of Barcelona defender Martin Montoya.

The Merseyside club is looking to strengthen their squad during the summer and manager Brendan Rodgers is reported to be a big admirer of the 22-year-old.

With Jamie Carragher announcing his retirement from the game, Rodgers is keen to bolster his defence and add some quality players to the squad as they look to close the gap on the top four.

But he will have to move quickly if he wants to sign the Spanish defender as Inter are making advanced moves to sign Montoya.

The Italian giants are looking for another right sided player after Javier Zanetti was ruled out for a lengthy period after rupturing his Achilles' tendon.

Barcelona will be looking for a sizeable fee for the talented full-back and both clubs look set for a bidding war during the summer.
