Liverpool have reportedly lowered their asking price for goalkeeper Pepe Reina, but Napoli will still not bid for him.
According to an article written in Italian daily Il Mattino, the Reds have told the Partenopei they would not be willing to consider loaning the Spaniard out for a second season.
Instead, the Anfield club are said to want to sell Reina outright and would even do business at less than the €4m figure they were initially thought to have been asking for.
However, Rafa Benitez’s team are not reported to be interested in making an offer and it appears the 31-year-old will not be returning to San Paolo.
The report is at odds with comments made yesterday by Reina’s agent, who said his client would spend next year with the Merseysiders.
