Salvatore Sirigu: Blues target

Aston Villa and Newcastle United are reportedly interested in signing Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu in the January transfer window.

Sirigu is apparently desperate to leave PSG next month after falling behind Kevin Trapp in the pecking order at Parc des Princes. The 28-year-old is said to have refused to play in the club’s Champions League victory over Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday night.

According to French newspaper L’Equipe, Villa, Newcastle, AC Milan and Palermo are all keen, but Sirigu’s £3million salary could put the Premier League pair in the driving seat for the Italy international.
