It hasn’t been the easiest couple of years for Salvatore Sirigu. After losing his place to Kevin Trapp at Paris Saint Germain, the Italian goalkeeper had to endure the ignominy of watching on as his replacement stumbled through a series of error-strewn displays.
And this season has been no better. After being sent off on his La Liga debut on loan at Sevilla, his deal was cut short midway through the campaign. And, two years after winning almost every domestic trophy imaginable at PSG, he is now on the verge of relegation with Spanish basement boys Osasuna.
And, a year on, Kicker reports that he is still on the radar of the Premier League duo despite his stock plummeting in Spain.
With Joel Robles and Maarten Stekelenberg failing to convince at Everton this season, manager Ronald Koeman is expected to be on the lookout for a new goalkeeper. Though reported top target, Sunderland’s Jordan Pickford (below), is on the wish list of almost every one of the Premier League big boys, as reported by The Sun.
Hull, meanwhile, may be in need of a more reliable custodian with Eldin Jakupovic and David Marshall yet to prove on a consistent basis that they are bonafide Premier League quality.
Though, according to Kicker, the duo may have a challenge on their hands with Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich surprisingly on Sirigu’s tail. The Champions League quarter-finalists are expected to lose perennial understudy Sven Ulreich in the summer and Sirigu could be an astute replacement.
Though the Italian needs first-team football to restore his reputation. Meaning, strangely enough, Everton and Hull could be a more desirable destination than the Allianz Arena.
