Martin Montoya's agent has claimed that his client is open to a switch to the Premier League with no contract offer from Barcelona forthcoming, reports the Daily Express.
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.
With only one year left on his current deal, Montoya would be available on a free transfer next summer and Arsenal are reported to be monitoring the situation.
Wenger is thought to be keen on bringing another right-back to the club with Bacary Sagna yet to sign a contract extension on a deal that also runs out next summer.
Now the 22-year-old's agent has thrown fuel on the fire by claiming his client is concerned that he remains unable to get a look in ahead of right-back Dani Alves and could leave in search of first team football.
He also confirmed that Brendan Rodgers has declared his intentions to bring his client to Merseyside as competition for Glen Johnson.
With Barcelona yet to open talks over a new deal, it is looking increasingly likely that move to Anfield or Arsene Wenger's Arsenal could happen.
Montoya's agent Jose Maria Orobitg told Sky Italia: "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."
