Arsenal are eyeing a January move for Spanish goalkeeper Pepe Reina according to The Metro.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is understood to be concerned about his goalkeeping options at The Emirates Stadium and Liverpool star Reina could be the man to help shore up the Arsenal’s leaky defence.

It is understood that reports in Spain claim Wenger is ready to move for the 30-year-old goalkeeper – a player he first tried to sign in 2010, and is now hopeful the Liverpool board will be more receptive to any bid this time around.

Reina has been one of the most consistent goalkeepers in Europe over the last decade and has played 26 times for his country, however, the former-Barcelona stopper could now be left out in the cold at Anfield, with Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers ready to keep faith with Australian Brad Jones – who took his chance while Reina was out injured.

Wenger, meanwhile, will have first choice goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny at his disposal this weekend when Arsenal face North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
