Liverpool look set to land Simon Mignolet from Sunderland this week with Pepe Reina likely to be moving out of Anfield.
A deal is almost in place with the Black Cats to bring Mignolet to Anfield, as the two sides are thought to be close to agreeing a fee for the Belgium international although Sunderland are holding out for more than Liverpool are happy to pay.
When the deal is done it is expected that current keeper Reina will be on his way, although he is still under contract, amid claims the opportunity of playing for a bigger club would be difficult to turn down.
He said: "I'm very happy and satisfied at Liverpool, I feel valued and respected.
"Logically, if there was a chance to improve and go to a bigger club it would be a good opportunity, although there are few clubs bigger than Liverpool."
