Napoli are looking for a new shot-stopper and had been pushing to sign Julio Cesar from QPR. But with a deal with the Brazilian proving a step too far on the personal terms front, the Italian giants have turned to Reina.

Liverpool are thought to have agreed to allow Reina to spend the 2013/14 campaign in Italy, but the deal is not done yet.

Small details remain to be ironed out, along with contracts to be signed. However, the Spaniard would be reunited with former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez were he to move to Italy.
