Roma look towards summer move for Palermo ace

Palermo’s talented goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu has admitted that he is flattered that Roma have shown an interest in him. The 24-year-old has represented the national team on two occasions and is considered to one of the best Italian keepers in the country.
Sirigu has played for Palermo since 2006, after loan spells with Cremonese and Ancona he has settled into the first team at the Sicilian outfit. Having now played over 60 times for Rosanero the young shot stopper managed to earn himself a contract extension in October, this would last until 2014. Even so, the deal was not one Sirgu perhaps deserves and despite being valued between 15 and 20 million Euros he is still one of the lowest earners at the club.
Carlo Pallavicino, Sirigu’s agent is certainly keen for his client to move: “There hasn’t been any official contact with Roma’s directors, but I have to say that my client would be very flattered by any interest on Roma’s behalf. Any eventual deal would be facilitated by the good relations between Maurizio Zamparini and the Roma directors. Moreover, selling Sirigu would represent a nice bit of business on the transfer market for the Palermo President from a financial point of view.” Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
