Liverpool outcast Pepe Reina is still unsure on his future, and Sky Sports are reporting that the player has asked his agent to look into the options available to him.
The 31-year-old Spaniard, who spent last season on loan at Serie A side Napoli following the arrival of Simon Mignolet, still has two years remaining on his Anfield contract, and is desperate to leave the club in order to secure first-team football.
Napoli boss Rafael Benitez, who managed Reina at Liverpool, has already ruled out the Italians making the stopper’s loan move permanent.
“I want to be calm. There are people who are working on my future,” Reina told Gazzetta dello Sport. “I have two years left on my Liverpool contract and the situation is the same as a month ago.”
Reina’s former Napoli tea-mate Dries Mertens has asked the club to reconsider signing the keeper for a second time, following the Spaniard’s solid World Cup performance against Australia. Mertens wrote on Twitter: “Good match Pepe Reina, congratulations! Now make me happy and start negotiating a new contract with Napoli.”
“I’ve not spoken to Brendan Rodgers and I don’t know what Liverpool think,” Reina added. “But I have a contract and that is what counts, I have to join up with Liverpool and there’s nothing more I can do. I’ve said goodbye to Rafa and he knows the situation.”
