It has been reported that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will bid for Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina in the summer if (when) Liverpool fail to qualify for the champions league next year.

The report claimed Wenger was weighing up options for Arsenal’s new No1 after the indifferent form of Almunia and Fabianski this season, and Reina was top of his wish list. It is ‘understood’ that Arsene was ready take advantage of Liveprool’s financial position, which will worsen without the revenue generated by champions league action.

Now, i would absolutely love it if Arsene Wenger was even considering going for a player like Reina. He is experienced, has played in the premiership for years, at 27 is a good age and is a world class goalkeeper.

But seriously, do the papers actually think people will believe this rubbish? Pepe Reina?! Wenger would never pay what would be required to buy him, Liverpool wouldn’t sell him to us, Reina only just signed a new 5-year contract, and his family all love it in Liverpool and are very settled. If Reina was ever to leave Liverpool, it wouldn’t be to Arsenal or any other English club, he would most likely return to Spain.

So sorry Arsenal fans, you can rip that one up and throw it in the bin because it’s never going to happen. But after watching Joe Hart’s performance in the Birmingham v Villa game yesterday, i hope the rumours of Wenger’s interest in him are true. He made several superb saves and is definitely better than what we’ve got. But Wenger said all the recent transfer rumours were rubbish, so i won’t get my hopes up on that one either. Although it’s FAR more likely that Pepe Reina!

What Goalkeeper would Arsenal fans like to see Wenger buy? Do you believe the Reina rumours? Please leave your comments below….

    Do peopel honestly think this will happen as pepe has stated his love of liverpool the place and the supporters also signed a new contract. But that is all besides the point we all know pepe is a bit to old for wenger he likes to play with a younger team.

    I think Joe Hart has looked great this season and would be the ideal replacement with Szczesny installed as no2. Fabianski as no3.

    Yeah I will only believe the wc goalie has been signed and paraded in the
    pitch at ES.
    Otherwise we have a great goalie in Fabianski.

    A goalkeeper seems to be a major reason for Arsenals disappointing season dis year, if only we could get a world class goalkeeper, then we have a good chance to win silverware………after all our midfield and attacking options is among the best…. Cheers.s@sh

    I think AW should go for Joe Hart. He is young, very good and will probably add some 6-8 points a season. Buy him fast. Even his fellow pros agree he has been the best this season.
