Pepe Reina (Nápoles)

He is currently on loan from Liverpool and his contract expires in June 2016, but President Aurelio De Laurentiis confirmed he wants the 31-year-old to stay.

According to Calciomercato.com, Liverpool are prepared to sell Reina for a maximum of £5m.

The problem appears to be the personal terms, as it’s claimed Napoli offered a four-year deal worth €2.5m per season plus performance-related bonuses.

It would be a huge drop for Reina, who currently earns €4.5m without bonuses.

The same source also suggests the Spaniard is not convinced he wants to end his career in Naples, so would prefer a two-year contract paying wages of at least €3.5m per season.
