Some Liverpool fans on Twitter have urged their club to re-sign former goalkeeper Pepe Reina amid the injury to Alisson which manager Jurgen Klopp has said will rule him out “for the next few weeks”, however they appear unlikely to get their wish.
The Brazilian suffered the injury issue against Norwich City on Friday, with recent signing Adrian stepping in to replace him during the match.
However, the Merseyside outfit currently have a lack of depth in that position with Caoimhin Kelleher currently recovering from a broken wrist, and it appears as though free-agent Andy Lonergan – who was with the Reds during pre-season – could be the man to fill the void if Klopp’s recent words are true.

That hasn’t stopped Liverpool supporters calling for the return of one of their former heroes in Reina, although any deal would have to involve either an emergency loan or him leaving AC Milan given he has one year left on his contract at the San Siro and with the transfer window now being closed.
While one individual said it “makes perfect sense”, another said “announce Pepe Reina emergency loan”.
The 36-year-old made 395 appearances in all competitions for the Champions League holders according to Transfermarkt, keeping 177 clean sheets.
