Despite only bringing Reina to the San Siro in May from Napoli on a free transfer, Milan are prepared to let the former Liverpool shot-stopper leave the club in part-exchange.
With speculation Thibaut Courtois will depart Stamford Bridge for Real Madrid, Chelsea could need a new goalkeeper, though the 35-year-old had not previously been on the radar.
Add in the fact that the Blues want to keep the French star for at least one more season, and this deal looks like a no-goer.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic has revealed interest from Cardiff in his signature “means a lot”, given the Serbian helped the Bluebirds to Premier League promotion last term.
The 22-year-old spent the second-half of last season on loan at the Welsh side and has been linked with a permeant switch to Neil Warnock’s men.
Grujic, who was Jurgen Klopp’s first Anfield signing from Red Star Belgrade back in January 2016, has struggled to establish himself on Merseyside and first-team opportunities are also likely to be hard to come by this coming season.
Cardiff have yet to make an official offer for the World Cup star, however, Liverpool are thought to be happy to listen to bids.
The Toffees are braced for a mega bid from Chelsea for their No.1 Jordan Pickford, with reports suggesting Maurizio Sarri’s men want the England goalkeeper to replace Courtois.
Los Blancos’ pursuit of the Belgian shot-stopper has gone quiet over the past week, however, the former Atletico Madrid man remains a top target for Julen Lopetegui’s charges.
Until that deal progresses and is indeed completed, Chelsea will not chase Pickford’s signature.
Regardless, it is unlikely Everton will allow Pickford – a man they recruited from Sunderland for £30m last summer – to leave the club on the cheap.
