Report: Reina definitely wants Napoli

Pepe Reina

Italian newspaper Il Mattino believes that Pepe Reina has settled on signing for Napoli and a formula has been proposed for another loan from Liverpool.

Pepe Reina's World Cup ended prematurely and it is being suggested that the Liverpool owned goalkeeper is ready to decide his club future.

Napoli have significant resources at their disposal this summer to strengthen the squad and the goalkeeper position is one of their major priorities.

Reina spent last season on loan to Serie A side Napoli and impressed at the Stadio San Paolo, helping the Partenopei to third place and the Coppa Italia.

Napoli made it clear that they would like to make Reina's stay permanent and he appears to have no place at Liverpool, but the custodian's wage bill appeared to be an insurmountable obstacle.

The 31-year-old insisted that he would wait until after the World Cup to make any decisions, but that came sooner than expected as Spain were dumped out at the group stage.

Italian newspaper Il Mattino claims that Reina has called Napoli and told them that he wants to play for them next season.

It is reported that Liverpool and Napoli are entering talks and are most likely to try and agree another season long loan.

Last season, Liverpool continued to pay 50 percent of Reina's salary, but Il Mattino believes that Napoli are now willing to contribute a larger amount.
