Reina, 30, has endured a poor start to the season, making costly errors in the matches versus Manchester City, Arsenal and Hearts.

The Spain international's lack of form has led to suggestions that Reds manager Brendan Rodgers is considering a move for Swansea shot-stopper Michel Vorm.

However, Reina's agent, Manuel Garcia Quilon, has stressed the goalkeeper, who signed for Liverpool from Villarreal in 2005, is committed at Anfield.

"There is no problem right now," he told Calciomercato. "Pepe has played many games in the Liverpool shirt and is used to all kinds of rumours.

"It is clear he is not having an easy time because the team has not started the season well and liability is falling on him.

"But this will end when he returns to form. He still has four years to run on his contract and rumours of leaving Liverpool are just that - rumours."
