Lazio confirm the free signing of Pepe Reina

Veteran goalkeeper Pepe Reina has agreed to join Lazio from AC Milan.

The former Liverpool, Barcelona and Napoli man, spent the second-half of last season loan at Aston Villa, who he helped keep up in the Premier League after narrowly avoiding relegation.

Lazio on Thursday confirmed the signing of the former Spain international, who will turn 38 later this month.

AC Milan failed to qualify for the Champions League after finishing sixth in the Serie A last season.

Reina was back-up to Gianluigi Donarumma at the San Siro, and he is also expected to play second fiddle to Lazio No 1 Thomas Strakosha.

Since joining AC Milan in 2018, Reina has only ever made 13 appearances for the club in all competitions.

He made 12 appearances while on loan at Villa Park helping the cub maintain their Premier League status.
