Reyes linked with Merseyside duo

Former Arsenal forward Jose Antonio Reyes could be set for a surprise return to England this summer, with Merseyside duo Everton and Liverpool reportedly interested in acquiring his services. The Spanish international - who has 21 caps for his country - left Arsenal, via a loan spell at Real Madrid, for Atletico Madrid in 2007 having made 69 league appearances for the Gunners. However, the former Sevilla star struggled to impress at the Vicente Calderon, and was shipped out on loan to Benfica last summer on a season-long deal, with the Lisbon giants also purchasing 25 percent of his playing rights. But reports in Spain and Portugal are now claiming that Benfica have offered just 4 million euros to buy the remaining 75 percent. And with Atletico uninterested in retaining Reyes, Merseyside rivals Everton and Liverpool are believed to be mulling over the possibility of bringing the out-of-favour forward back to Britain and helping him rejuvenate his drifting career.
