Arsenal goalkeeper target Jose Reina is reportedly available for £20 million.
The Spanish international stopper hinted at a potential Barclays Premier League switch earlier in the week, with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger reportedly keen to bring the player to the Emirates.
Reina is recognised as one of the best keepers in England, and has been a shining light for Liverpool since moving to Anfield back in 2005. However, the club’s poor start to the season and lack of Champions League football could lead to an exit for the 28-year-old.

Andrey Arshavin looks set to remain an Arsenal player – at least until the summer – after the club rejected a transfer approach from his former club Zenit St Petersburg.
Reports in Arshavin’s native Russia – where the transfer window remains open until next month – suggest Zenit opened talks with the Gunners over the prospect of taking the out-of-form 29-year-old on loan with a view to a permanent move in the summer.
However, manager Arsene Wenger still believes the player has a future at the Emirates Stadium and has rejected the bid outright, the Zenit sources said.
The Russian club have apparently refused to rule out a future bid for the player, although this now looks unlikely to come until the summer.
Arsenal appear to be very much interested in Liverpool keeper Pepe Reina and comments attributed to the Spaniard seem to suggest that the 28 year old is very much looking for Champions League football that he looks likely to miss out on at Anfield.
Arsene Wenger has a few keepers at his disposal but is apparently still very keen on bringing in a new number one. Manuel Almunia is likely to be on his way and young Italian Vito Mannone is currently on loan at Hull City and seemingly low down the pecking order at the North London club. Lukasz Fabianski has shown signs of improvement but now has a long term injury. Young Pole Wojciech Szcz?sny has just signed an improved contract but may be some way from being ready for a regular run in the first team.
Reina may however opt to stay at Liverpool if the Merseyside club continues their good run of form under new manager Kenny Dalglish.
Andrei Arshavin has looked a shadow of his usual self and a move from his former club to bring the Russian playmaker back is no unexpected and the issue of such a deal coming a reality is sure to re-emerge in the summer, unless the talented attack minded midfielder can get his head back into the game.
