Liverpool have heightened speculation over the future of Pepe Reina by lining up a £5m move for Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.
Barcelona have made Reina one of their main summer transfer targets and Liverpool are preparing for life without the Spaniard by firming up their interest in Ochoa.
The 27-year-old started out at Club America and moved to French side Ajaccio in 2011.
He missed just one league match last season as Ajaccio, who had secured promotion to the top flight in 2011, successfully avoided relegation.
The 32-time Mexico international has been an ever-present this term and his displays have alerted Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers, who is ready to sanction a move if Reina moves back to the Nou Camp at the end of the season.
