Tottenham Hotspur are believed to have Salvatore Sirigu on their radar once again after learning that the goalkeeper could leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
talkSPORT claims that the 28-year-old would be open to exploring his options after the arrival of Kevin Trapp as competition at the Parc des Princes.
As ITV Sport reports, PSG signed Trapp from Eintracht Frankfurt on a five-year contract on Wednesday. The 25-year-old is deputy to Bayern Munich’s Manuel Neuer for the German national team.
PSG president Nasser al-Khelaifi has assured Sirigu, who joined the Ligue 1 champions from Palermo shortly after their Middle-East takeover in 2011, that his future at the club is safe.
He is quoted by the Daily Mail as saying: “Salvatore is a very good goalkeeper. I don’t forget that, in 2011, he was one of the first players to join us and to believe in our project. He helped us to build quickly a very competitive team with whom he won three titles in Ligue 1 and several other trophies.
“But if we want to compete for a place on top of European football we must have more than one strong player for each key position. As you know, it is the case in several big European clubs. Salvatore is aware of this context.”
But Sirigu fears that his place is under threat and would consider a move away from the French capital despite only signing a new contract until 2018 as recently as September, according to talkSPORT.
Talksport adds that Tottenham have a long-standing interest in the Italian and may swoop for him if Hugo Lloris leaves for Manchester United. Sky Sports suggest that the Frenchman is favourite to replace David de Gea at Old Trafford if the PFA Player of the Year nominee moves to Real Madrid.
Would Sirigu be a worthy replacement for one of the Premier League’s best goalkeepers? These acrobatic reflex saves might convince Spurs fans that letting Lloris go for big money wouldn’t be the worst thing.
