Catalans are also said to be closely monitoring German keeper Ter Stege. 

La Liga champions FC Barcelona are still keen on signing Liverpool goalkeeper Jose Manuel Reina at the end of this season as a replacement for outgoing No 1 Victor Valdes at Camp Nou, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

The experienced Spain international is currently spending a season-long loan with Serie A high-flyers Napoli under the management of former Reds boss Rafa Benitez.

However, the Southern Italians to do have any agreement in place with the Merseysiders to buy Reina permanently come the end of this campaign, with the Reds set to sell the shot stopper to the highest bidder following their own recent purchase of Belgium keeper Simon Mignolet from Sunderland for £9 million.

As a result, Barca are said to still be weighing up their options regarding Valdes’s long-term replacement in Catalonia next season after the Spanish goalkeeper confirmed his intentions to leave the Liga giants next summer after 11 years at the club.

So much so that technical secretary Albert Valentin recently went to watch Reina in action first hand in Napoli’s Uefa Champions League group-stage clash with Marseille in the South of France, as well as another potential target, Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, in Borussia Monchengladbach’s Bundesliga contest with Eintracht Frankfurt.
