Former Reds boss Rafael Benitez saw the opportunity to make a loan offer for the Spanish keeper, who helped his Serie A side finish third in the league as well as lifting the Italian Cup.

Ongoing negotiations have already taken place at the end of the previous season but with the initial round of talks not reaching a conclusion, the club are looking likely to reignite their conversation.

With Iker Casillas letting in five goals against Holland in their World Cup opening match, Reina could be given his chance to shine should Vincente del Bosque decide to give his captain a rest.
