One In, One Out At Anfield?

Is Reina on his way?
Is Reina on his way?

The Sunday Mirror and Sky Sports News are both running the story that Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina is looking to move on after 6 seasons at Anfield, with AC Milan interested in the Spanish stopper.

In the same story it is suggested that new boss Brendan Rodgers is looking at French No.1 Hugo Lloris - a rumour that initially surfaced via 10 Sport - with the paper claiming the Olympique Lyonnais man would be tempted by a move to Anfield if Reina does leave.

Two years ago I firmly believed Reina was the best goalkeeper in the Premier League (and he still has the best distribution) but his overall level has dropped since and he made a number of high profile mistakes last season during a difficult year all round on Merseyside. While his loss would seem to be a big blow to Liverpool it is a blow that could be significantly softened were a quality replacement brought in immediately.

As one the most exciting young keepers in Europe, Lloris would fit that description and at almost 5 years younger than Reina (who claimed in a recent interview that Liverpool are not the same club that he joined), it could actually end up being a positive move for the club as Rodgers looks to freshen his squad with one eye on the future.

How would our Anfield following feel about such a trade?
