On-loan Napolia goalkeeper Pepe Reina acknowledged he's ready to swap Liverpool for Barcelona.

The Spaniard, who's a graduate from Barca's academy, was loaned to Napoli after the Reds secured Simon Mignolet from Sunderland in the summer.

Reina told Cadena Cope (via SkySports) he felt "super happy" at Naples, but with Victor Valdes' departure imminent, the keeper is looking to return to his boyhood team.

‘To play at Barca is a privilege. I was fortunate to play there once and I consider myself privileged to have done that,’ the stopper is quoted by Metro

'Barca is a top club and Victor Valdes’ departure will have alerted other candidates so a return will be very difficult,’ concluded Reina.

Earlier this month, Pepe said he was proud for making the move that saw him move away from Anfield after seven years of service.

"My wife was the first to encourage me to move and now I'm very proud and grateful for that decision. I think it has been an absolute success and that I'm a stronger goalkeeper than last year," claimed the 31-year-old.

The stopper, however, is under contract with the Reds until 2016, but suggested his job at Anfield was finished.

"It's very difficult that I'll return to Liverpool. In the summer I will have to finish my contract with them," he said quoted by Sky.

Napoli are set to meet Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium next Wednesday in a decisive clash of the "group of death". Londoners are first with 12 points while the Italians share the second spot with Borussia Dortmund with nine each.
