Report: Liverpool set to miss out as PSG goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu prefers loan move elsewhere

Jurgen Klopp had reportedly made the Italian one of his main transfer targets.

Liverpool appear set to miss out on Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu, as The Sun reports that the Italian would prefer a loan switch to Torino.

Despite recalling Danny Ward from his loan at Aberdeen (via Liverpool Echo), Jurgen Klopp had reportedly decided that he wanted to bring the 28-year-old to Anfield following a series of mistakes from Simon Mignolet's back-up stopper Adam Bogdan in recent weeks, The Sun claims. However, with Mignolet set to remain the Reds' number one, the PSG man appears destined to head elsewhere.

The Sun reports that a return to Serie A - nearly five years after leaving Palermo - would see Sirigu given first-team football as part of Giampiero Ventura's side, and thus, it is his preferred option. 

The news of Sirigu's snub will be a blow to Klopp. The keeper was an integral part of the PSG side that clinched the domestic treble last season, which would have made him a great addition to a Liverpool side that are trying to pull themselves into top four contention.

And he is perhaps unlucky not to be considered by Klopp as a potential number one should he have moved to Merseyside. While Mignolet has had some good spells of form during his time at the club, he has been guilty of mistakes on several occasions during his Liverpool career.
