Liverpool are reported to have informed Napoli of the financial requirements to secure the signing of Pepe Reina on a permanent deal, with the Merseyside club requesting £4 million for the Spanish goalkeeper.
Reina moved to the Stadio San Paolo on a season-long loan agreement and, according to Goal.com, Napoli been told just how much they must pay to keep the player having indicated that they would like to pursue a transfer.
The 31-year-old has established himself as Napoli’s undoubted first-choice ‘keeper under former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez, and Reina’s future clearly lies away from Anfield.
Brendan Rodgers moved to secure Simon Mignolet from Sunderland last summer as his new No.1, and Liverpool are prepared to allow Reina to leave the club so long as their demands are met.
Barcelona have also been linked with Reina in the past and, although the Catalans have confirmed he in the past that he is a player they would consider, Marc-Andre ter Stegen is almost certain to be Victor Valdes’ replacement.
The young German has confirmed he will leave Borussia Monchengladbach at the end of the season, and the Nou Camp is expected to be his destination.
