Liverpool plotting move for Italy international to provide competition for problem position

According to reports in France, Liverpool are considering a move for Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu, and may look to move for the Italy international in January.

The 28-year-old stopper is approaching his prime, but has found himself sidelined at PSG following the January addition of Kevin Trapp.

While the German newcomer has been guilty of his fair share of blunders, Laurent Blanc has kept faith in the new boy, seeing him as the long-term solution between the sticks for the capital club.

With Paris keeping faith in Trapp, Sirigu’s future appears murky, despite the fact that the keeper is an Italy international and has won three consecutive Ligue 1 titles with the Parisians.

He has also lifted the Trophee des Champions on three occasions, the Coupe de la Ligue twice and the Coupe de France earlier this year, making him an experienced option for Liverpool, who are keen on his signature according to Foot Mercato.
