Pepe Reina: Napoli goalkeeper linked with Liverpool return

Liverpool want to re-sign Napoli goalkeeper Pepe Reina this summer, according to shock reports in Italy.

Liverpool have already signed one keeper this summer, Loris Karius from Mainz for a reported £4.7million, but Corriere dello sport claims Jurgen Klopp wants Reina to be his new No.1 at Anfield.

Reina enjoyed a successful eight-year spell at Anfield between 2005 and 2013 in which he won an FA Cup and League Cup and also started the Reds’ Champions League final defeat to AC Milan in 2007.

He joined Napoli on a season-long loan in 2013 before spending a year at Bayern Munich and then returning to Naples on a free transfer last summer.

Napoli are understandably said to want to keep hold of their first-choice stopper, but the chance of an emotional return to Merseyside may appeal to the 33-year-old.
