According to a recent report from Sky Italy, Pepe Reina looks set to join Lazio from fellow Italian club AC Milan on a two year deal. The former Liverpool goalkeeper was able to restore his reputation over the course of the last few months, helping Aston Villa to survive in the Premier League for another season.
The 37-year-old will be going from relegation strugglers to Champions League competitors with Lazio already having qualified for the competition next season. The hope is that he will be able to complete his medical next week, setting the stage for another stint in Italian football.
Reina may not exactly be in the prime of his career right now, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t still incredibly effective. He’ll want to maximise his final few years at the top level of the beautiful game, and heading to a club like Lazio will allow him to do that.
