Roma have made the first move in the race for Salvatore Sirigu, according to reports swirling in France.
As reported, Paris Saint-Germain could be set to sell last season’s first-choice keeper Sirigu after the arrival of Kevin Trapp.
Kevin Trapp transferred from Eintracht Frankfurt and signed a five-year contract on Wednesday, at the headquarters of the Club. He will be presented to media next Monday in Paris.
Considered as one of the most talented new players of German football, Kevin Trapp began his professional career with FC Kaiserslautern before joining Eintracht Frankfurt in 2012. He played 114 Bundesliga games.
Sirigu is a long-term target of Tottenham and he has been suggested as a potential successor for Hugo Lloris should he leave White Hart Lane this summer as expected when De Gea leaves for Bernabeu.
But the north London club will face stiff competition should they launch a move to land the Italian.
The Italy international remains on Valencia’s radar but now sources in France have revealed that Roma have already kicked off the bidding for Sirigu.
It has been suggested that the Serie A side have offered £7.9m in the hope they can take the 28-year-old former Palermo favourite back to Italian football.
Having began his career with Palermo, he moved to PSG in 2011. Twice voted the Ligue 1 Goalkeeper of the Year, his honours at the club include three consecutive league titles, and all four domestic competitions of the 2014–15 season.
