Could ex-Red Pepe Reina be in line for a shock switch to Anfield?

The Spanish goalkeeper has been linked with making a comeback, with TalkSport reporting Jurgen Klopp is keen on re-signing him.

This is despite signing goalkeeper Loris Karius last month, with Reina potentially replacing Simon Mignolet.

Reina turns 34 in August, and is currently at Napoli, where he was originally loaned by ex-Reds boss Rafa Benitez, who signed him for Liverpool in 2005, playing almost as many as 400 games for the Reds in all competitions.

Reina had a year at Bayern Munich in between where he was a deputy to Manuel Neuer, before signing permanently with Napoli last summer, where he helped them finish second in Serie A.

The Spanish goalkeeper was sold by Brendan Rodgers, who wanted his own man Mignolet has first choice, who has never really won fans over.

The ex-Reds stopper remains highly regarded at Anfield, and the notion of bringing him back is so far generally well received.
