Paris Saint-Germain will sell Italy goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu for €8 million, according to reports in France, with Tottenham Hotspur reportedly keen on the goalkeeper as a potential replacement for Hugo Lloris.

Should the 24-year-old leave the club, Louis van Gaal may well need to find a replacement, with Victor Valdes linked heavily with a move to Turkey [Eurosport].

The likes of Fernando Muslera [Metro] and Jasper Cillessen [talkSPORT] have been mooted as possible additions to United’s squad, but Spurs keeper Lloris has also been tipped to move to Old Trafford [Metro].

Mauricio Pochettino, consequently, is understood to be considering Sirigu as a candidate to replace the French skipper [Metro].

The 28-year-old Italian has been PSG’s first-choice custodian for four seasons, but the arrival of Kevin Trapp has jeopardised his place in the Parisians’ squad.

According to RMC [via Le 10 Sport], Laurent Blanc is willing to offload the international stopper, and would require a fee of €8 million—which translates as £5.6 million—for the keeper.

However, if Tottenham are keen on bringing Sirigu to White Hart Lane, they may need to see off competition for the player, with Valencia understood to be eyeing a move [ESPN].
