Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has confirmed that he wants to move to Barcelona next summer. 

The Spanish international, who is currently on loan at Rafa Benitez's Napoli side, has targeted a return to the Catalan ouftit. 

With current Barca 'keeper Victor Valdes expected to leave the Nou Camp at the season's end, Reina could be the man to replace his fellow Spaniard in goal. 

The 31-year-old has already given up hope of returning to Anfield. Brendan Rodgers signed goalkeeper Simon Mignolet in the summer and the Belgian has impressed so far for the Reds.

So, Reina will now hope to make the switch to Barcelona once his deal with Napoli comes to an end. 

Speaking to Catalunya Radio, Reina said: "I would very much like to return to Barcelona. I'm delighted that my name has been suggested, but my goal now is to have a good season in Naples. And in the summer, we will see.

"Nothing is signed. I imagine that the club [Barcelona] has spoken with many and have several in the pipeline. We will see what happens next year with Victor Valdes."

Reina's immediate focus will be with Napoli. Benitez's side have made a strong start to Serie A winning five of their opening six fixtures. 

However they will be hoping to get over their recent setback after they were beaten 2-0 against Arsenal in the Champions League.
