Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina would apparently favour a move to Arsenal - should he quit Merseyside.

Rumours have been rife in recent months that Reina was on the radar of Arsenal and Manchester United as both look to sign a new no.1 stopper.

Arsene Wenger has been on the lookout for a new gloveman for some time after firstly losing faith in Manuel Almunia and now Polish youngster Lukasz Fabianksi - whose error resulted in the Gunners losing to Newcastle yesterday.

Likewise, Sir Alex Ferguson wants to bring a new 'keeper to Old Trafford as veteran Dutchman Edwin van der Sar nears the end of his career with Manchester United.

Both clubs have been heavily linked with Reina, who has established himself as arguably the best goalkeeper in the Premier League since joining Liverpool from Villarreal five years ago.

Arsenal were reported to have made a £23 million offer for the Anfield favourite in the summer but Liverpool rebuffed their attempts to lure the Spaniard to the Emirates.

Now, according to The People, the 28-year-old has told his agent Garcia Quilon that the prospect of joining Arsenal is something that attracts him - rather than moving to Liverpool's bitter rivals Manchester United.

Reina will reportedly decide in the summer if his future still lies with Liverpool, but the Reds board maintain he is not for sale.
