Arsenal Invincible linked with MLS switch

Sevilla winger Jose Antonio Reyes could be set to make the move to Major League Soccer with less than six months remaining on his contract.

A report by Inside Spanish Football claims that the 31-year-old Spaniard is the subject of interest from clubs in MLS and in Qatar.

Reyes started his career with Sevilla and returned to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in 2012. The Liga BBVA club are looking to extend his stay with the club as his deal expires at the end of the current season, but interest from MLS could see Reyes move on for the final chapter of his career.

Clubs from Qatar are also tracking the former Arsenal and Real Madrid man but he is unlikely to be persuaded by those offers having already turned down a move to the Middle East last winter.

A move to the United States is thought to be more appealing to Reyes and he could follow fellow Spaniard David Villa to MLS if he agrees to move in the next few months.

Reyes has enjoyed success wherever he has played. He most recently won the UEFA Europa League with Sevilla last season and won the same competition twice with Atletico Madrid between 2009 and 2012.

The winger was a part of the Arsenal Invincibles team that went unbeaten in the 2003-04 Premier League season and Reyes lifted the Premier League trophy with the Gunners that year.

He went on to win La Liga with Real Madrid after leaving Arsenal and would offer vital experience to any MLS club should he agree to leave Spain.

Reyes would probably have to be a Designated Player should he agree to a move stateside and could link up with fellow countryman David Villa at New York City FC as the MLS Expansion Franchise still have one DP slot available.

Would a move to MLS be a good move for Jose Antonio Reyes? Which club could he join?
