Arsenal could land Barcelona defender Martin Montoya on a one-year loan deal, [football] direct news understands. Arsenal’s continued contract negotiations with current full-back Bacary Sagna have forced Arsene Wenger to look for alternatives and he has been keen on Barcelona’s Martino Montoya for some time. Montoya who has featured more for the Catalan club this season has not played since the 3-1 defeat to Real Sociedad in February but did put pen-to-paper on a new and improved deal. However, despite extended his deal, it is understood that the young Spaniard could still leave the Nou Camp, albeit on a loan deal. Barca are keen to keep current right-back Dani Alves after a string of consistent performances this season and reserve Adriano is also keen to stay, making Montoya’s chances of playing time – hard to come by. Wenger believes that if Sagna refuses to sign a new deal, his relations with the La Liga giants could force a one-year loan move through.
