Pepe Reina, the Liverpool goalkeeper, is expected to join Napoli on a season-long loan deal in a bid to stay in contention for Spain’s World Cup squad.

The 30-year-old faces fierce competition for his place at Anfield following the £9 million signing of Simon Mignolet from Sunderland and has been offered the chance to link-up with Rafael Benitez, his former Liverpool manager, who is the new Napoli coach.

Reina was in Spain’s squad for the Confederations Cup but needs to be playing regularly at the highest level to stay ahead of David De Gea, the Manchester United goalkeeper, in the pecking order.

Mignolet started for Liverpool in front of 50,000 fans in Jakarta yesterday when goals from Raheem Sterling and Countinho handed Brendan Rodgers’s side a 2-0 win against Indonesia XI.
