Valencia target Pepe Reina ‘one step away’ from Lazio

Pepe Reina is close to joining Lazio after growing tired of waiting for Valencia to make an offer, AS reports.

Lazio are returning to the Champions League for the first time since 2007 and want an experienced goalkeeper to compete with Thomas Strakosha.

Reina, 37, fits the profile and is coming off a good loan spell at Aston Villa in England.

AC Milan will let Reina leave the club this summer and AS reveals that an ‘agreement with Lazio is almost closed’.

Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano adds Reina has agreed a two-year deal with Lazio.

Valencia had been favourites to land Reina after the disastrous performances of €35m keeper Jasper Cillesen.

However, the Spanish club have failed to sell Cillesen and Reina has become tired of waiting.

A number of Serie A clubs wanted Reina, a goalkeeper of proven quality, but he has said ‘yes’ to Lazio.

The Rome club hope to have Reina’s signature at the beginning of the week.
