Barcelona To Pursue Pepe Reina

Pepe Reina has reportedly agreed to join Barcelona at the end of the season to replace Victor Valdes.

The Liverpool keeper is currently spending a season-long loan at Napoli after reuniting with manager Rafa Benitez.

But it is becoming increasing likely that Reina has played his last game in a Liverpool jersey following the arrival of summer signing Simon Mignolet.

The Spanish keeper, who has 28 caps for his national side, came under speculation that he would depart for the Nou Camp earlier in the year but the deal never materialized.

But fresh reports in the Metro, suggest that a deal could well be completed before January as Thibaut Courtouis wants to stay and fight for the No.1 spot at Chelsea.

It was reported that Barcelona may offer around £30million for the Belgium, who is currently on loan at Athletico Madrid, but the 21-year-old has stated that he wants to prove his worth to Chelsea.
