Pepe Reina's Liverpool future unclear

Pepe Reina's Liverpool future is still unclear, as Napoli could still complete a permanent deal for the Spanish keeper, according to talkSPORT.

Reina, who has two years left on his Liverpool contract, is thought to not feature in Brendan Rodgers' plans as Simon Mignolet has become the number one at Anfield. A permanent move for the Spaniard was ruled out by Rafael Benitez this week, as the Italian side can't afford to pay his wages, which they only played half of in the loan deal last season. 

But rumours today suggest that Liverpool could subsidise his wages if he was to join Napoli, in an attempt to get Reina off the books at Anfield. 

The chasing pack includes Paris Saint-Germain, Galatasaray and Fenerbahce, who are monitoring the 'keepers current activity. It is certain that those suitors would have the funds to afford his £80,000 a week contract and so seem the most likely destinations for him. 

It is thought that Reina himself would favour a move to Napoli, after his successful loan spell that saw him help the Italians to a third place league finish, but would be happy to secure first team football, something that he wouldn't get under Rodgers.

A move away from Anfield for Reina could trigger further transfers for Rodgers, as he is keen to bring in the Swansea stopper Michel Vorm as competition to Mignolet, as he continues to reform the Liverpool side that came so close to the title last term.

Rodgers has already been busy this summer, bringing in Emre Can from Bayer Leverkusen for £9.75 million in a move that will be made official when the window opens on July 1.
