Former Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson has advised manager Brendan Rodgers to try and bring goalkeeper Pepe Reina back to Anfield in the January transfer window.
The Spaniard left the club in the Summer in a cut price move to German champions Bayern Munich after falling out with Rodgers and spending last season on loan to Italian side Napoli.
But with the poor form of his replacement Simon Mignolet resulting in the Belgian getting dropped, it seems that the Reds are on the look out for a new number one keeper. Backup stopper Brad Jones has started the last three games, but doesn’t look a long term option.
And Lawrenson thinks that Rodgers should swallow his pride and offer Reina a route back.
“Brendan is no doubt looking and trying to line things up but what about this: Would he go back cap in hand to Bayern Munich for Pepe Reina?” he wrote in his Echo column.
“He would make them stronger and regardless of what has been said between the pair, Reina would improve Liverpool.
“Reina making Liverpool stronger is only a good thing for Rodgers.” he concluded.
