Italian giants monitoring Anfield custodian.
AC Milan are keeping tabs on Pepe Reina’s situation at Liverpool.
Sunday press reports in England stated Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is now giving Reina until January to rescue his Anfield career after a disastrous start to the season.
Rodgers sees Swansea City No1 Michel Vorm as a better solution and is prepared to sell Reina if he fails to rediscover his best form.
Milan chiefs are monitoring developments closely as they seek a new long-term No1.
It seems highly unlikely Liverpool would consider offers for Spanish keeper Pepe Reina, not least because the alternatives Brendan Rodgers currently have are simply not good enough to be the Anfield side’s first choice options.
All talk of a possible exit for 30 year old Reina seems to stem from a couple of average performances from the experienced keeper, as though that could somehow overturn seven solid seasons between the sticks at the Merseyside club. The former Villarreal man is arguably one of Liverpool’s most able performers and it would be a huge surprise if Rodgers looked to offload the one time Barcelona man in preference for a possible move for Swansea City custodian Michael Vorm.
Interest from AC Milan is on the other hand not such a surprise as Massimiliano Allegri’s current first choice is veteran Christian Abbiati, a 35 year old of quality for sure but Reina is arguably a better quality player and a player who would certainly have collected far more than his 26 national team caps but for Iker Casillas’s presence.
Reina has been a virtual ever present at Liverpool since his move to the club in the summer of 2005, making a total of 360 appearances for the club.
