Newcastle United boss Rafa Benitez is keen to bring Pepe Reina back to the Premier League during this summer's transfer window.



The Spain international spent nine seasons with Premier League club Liverpool where he amassed 394 appearances across all competitions.

Reina has since moved on to Napoli following a loan spell with Bayern Munich, and he has made himself a regular with the Serie A outfit.

According to The Sun, Rafa could seek to lure Reina back to England this summer after having previously worked together in Merseyside.

The 34-year-old is currently weighing up his summer options after club president aimed a cheeky dig at his spouse, which has not gone well with Reina.

As a result, both parties are willing to part ways in the summer with the Naples outfit lining up a potential swoop for Arsenal shot-stopper Wojciech Szczesny in the summer.

Newcastle United are likely to reward Rafa with a £100m plus transfer kitty this summer after Mike Ashley promised 'every last penny' prior to the Spaniard's decision to extend his contract.
