Arsenal are ready to offer out-of-favour Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina a Premier League lifeline and are plotting a £5million bid.

Reina has been told to leave Anfield this summer but Napoli, the club where he spent last season on-loan, have so far failed to make a permanent offer for him.

He admitted this week that he faces an uncertain future, but Arsenal want to end the speculation by bringing him to north London.
