Reina has played 13 games in the last two seasons for AC Milan and is keen to get more game time, but he is expected to compete with Nyland, who impressed in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg against Leicester.
Reina, 37, made 285 appearances for Liverpool between 2005 and 2014 and has won 36 caps for Spain.
