The Spain international only recently signed a long-term deal with the Merseysiders, however, it is an open secret at the Reds that he is wanting a new challenge in his career and the shot stopper has already informed head coach Brendan Rodgers that he will be leaving the club sooner rather than later.
However, Wenger now wants to take advantage of the uncertainty surrounding Reina’s Liverpool future by making a move for the keeper in the January transfer window so as to steal a march on the likes of Liga giants Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico de Madrid, who have all contacted Liverpool to express their interests in signing the player at the end of this season.
Wenger has already tried to bring the Liverpool No 1 to north London before when the Gunners submitted an enormous £20 million offer for Reina back in the summer of 2010, only for the Reds to turn it down, much to the Spaniard’s annoyance.
But, the financial situation at Anfield is now a lot different, so much so that Arsenal even believe that they can get their man for as little as £10m.
