Newcastle target Pepe Reina has refused to rule out a sensational return to the Premier League.
Toon boss Rafa Benitez worked with the Spanish keeper at Liverpool and Napoli, and is linked with another reunion at St James’ Park.
Reina, 34, has one year left on his contract in Naples and will cost the Magpies £5million.
AC Milan are also interested in the stopper but his agent, Manuel Garcia Quillon, insists Reina will NOT leave Napoli for another Serie A side.
When asked whether a San Siro move could be on the cards, Quillon told Calciomercato: “No, there’s nothing.
“In Italy there’s only Napoli.
“The Premier League? We’re talking about an important player who a lot of teams would like, but his priority is to stay with Napoli.
“Is a renewal impossible? I don’t know, we discussed it but for now we haven’t moved forward.”
Benitez is desperate to sign another keeper for Newcastle’s Prem return.
Karl Darlow, 26, is the Toon’s No1 in goal, while £5m signing Matz Sels has failed to impress since joining last summer.
