Reina open to Napoli stay

Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has not ruled out the possibility of remaining at Napoli next season.

The Spain international spent the 2013-14 campaign on loan with the Serie A outfit but is not sure where he will play next.

Napoli are reportedly unwilling to meet Liverpool's asking price for Reina, who has two years left on his contract at Anfield.

"There is the possibility to stay at Napoli," Reina said to Gazzetta dello Sport. "It will depend on Liverpool, Napoli and on Reina.

"I have been really happy at Napoli and I feel loved.

"There is a project at Napoli that makes one dream.

"I have never ruled out the possibility to remain at Napoli."

The Spaniard made 30 league appearances last season to help Rafael Benitez's men finish third in Serie A and qualify for the Champions League.

Reds manager Brendan Rodgers indicated earlier this year that he does not see a future for Reina on Merseyside.

The 31-year-old is currently training with Spain in preparation for the World Cup in Brazil.
