Hugo Lloris
French source 10 Sport claim the Olympique Lyonnais stopper is Liverpool's top choice should Reina quit Anfield.
The 25-year-old France international is thought to be settled at Lyon, although chairman Jean-Michel Aaulas said before Euro 2012 that the keeper had told him he could be tempted by an offer from a "great European club".           
Milan were last week linked with the Spanish keeper, who arrived at Anfield in 2005 from Villarreal, as they look to sign a top keeper to replace the aging Christian Abbiati.
Reina, 29, claimed in a recent interview Liverpool are not the club that he and Fernando Torres had joined.
Reina is currently away at Euro 2012 with Spain and has not yet met new Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers.
