Liverpool have accepted a bid from Bayern Munich for goalkeeper Pepe Reina, according to The Daily Mail. 

The report has suggested that the Spanish goalkeeper, who was shipped out on loan at Italian outfit Napoli last term, could be set for a move to the Bundesliga giants in this transfer window.

It appears, then, that Reina, who previously enjoyed a fine stint as Liverpool's No.1 'keeper has finally seen his career on Merseyside come to an end following the club's signing of Simon Mignolet in the summer of 2013.

The Belgian shot-stopper quickly became Brendan Rodgers' first choice between the sticks when he arrived from Sunderland, and he impressed in his debut season at the club. And, despite Reina having travelled with the Reds on their tour of the US, the shot-stopper wasn't even able to make the team's bench as they went down 3-1 to rivals Manchester United last night. 

It's not surprising that Liverpool want to get Reina off their books, with the player currently earning a reported £100,000-a-week at the club. But, with the report from The Mail suggesting that the Merseyside outfit have accepted a bid in the region of £2 million for the 'keeper, it looks likely that he will head for the Anfield exit door on a permanent basis in the near future. 

Bayern No.2?

And, if Reina does make the move to the Bundesliga giants, it looks extremely unlikely that he will secure the No.1 spot at the club. Manuel Neuer, who is recognised as one of the world's best goalkeeper's currently holds that spot, so it seems that Reina would arrive as a back-up. 

Neuer was extremely impressive in this summer's World Cup as he helped Germany win the competition, and he looks set to be Bayern's No.1 for a long time yet. Bayern, under Pep Guardiola, will be hoping to stamp their mark in next season's Champions League after falling to eventual winners Real Madrid in the competition last term. 

Liverpool, meanwhile, will also be involved in Europe's elite competition next term after they secured a runners-up spot in England's elite division last time out.
