Premier League pair Everton and Hull City are allegedly targeting Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu.

According to Le Parisien, "serious contacts" have been established between the two clubs and Sirigu's advisers.

Everton are said to have abandoned their interest in Manchester City and England shot-stopper Joe Hart, after being told it would cost £7 million to loan him for one season (Mail), and are reportedly looking for Sirigu to compete with summer recruit Maarten Stekelenburg.

Hull, meanwhile, are said to want the Italian as their new number 1, after losing Allan McGregor to a long-term injury.

Sirigu is currently behind Kevin Trapp and Alphonse Areola in Paris and, according to Le Parisien, the 29-year-old had been in talks with Sevilla, whose second choice keeper David Soria is out for three to four months.

However, the presence of promising youngster Sergio Rico makes regular first team football difficult to envisage in Spain, which has reportedly prompted Sirigu's entourage to seek alternative suitors.

The former Palermo goalkeeper, who has 17 caps for Italy, arrived at the Parc des Princes five years ago and has made close to 200 appearances for PSG, winning four Ligue 1 titles and various other silverware.
