The Daily Mail are reporting that AC Milan want to buy Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina.
Reina joined the Merseyside club in 2005 from Villarreal and played eight seasons as Liverpool as their number one shot stopper.
The Spaniard still has two years left on his current Liverpool contract and has made 233 appearances in the Premier League so far.
However, he was pushed out of his number one spot when Brendan Rodgers signed Simon Mignolet last summer.
As a result, he joined up with former Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez on loan at Serie A side Napoli.
Loan spell at Napoli
Reina enjoyed some success on loan at Napoli, finishing third in the Serie A table while there.
During his loan spell he made 30 appearances for Napoli in Serie A, keeping 10 clean sheets in the process.
Reina also played in five Champions League games for Napoli, however, the Serie A club finished third in their group behind Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund.
During a Serie A match against AC Milan, Reina saved a penalty taken by Mario Balotelli, which was the first penalty the Italian striker had missed in his entire career.
Wages become a stumbling block
The Spanish shot stopper is said to be interested in making his move to the Serie A side permanent after his loan spell. However, his wages of £100,000 per week – as claimed by the same report – and the £4 million asking price was said to be too much.
Reina wanted by Milan
AC Milan are now after the signature of Reina but it looks like his wages and Liverpool's asking price are once again going to prove to be a stumbling block.
