Lazio are considering picking up Salvatore Sirigu in the summer to be the new backup goalkeeper.
Current incumbent Pepe Reina, who lost his starting spot to Thomas Strakosha earlier this season, is set to depart once his contract expires with the club at the end of this season. His departure means that a new veteran is needed to provide some experience in the squad.
As reported by Tuttosport (via LazioNews24), Reina’s departure is inevitable in the summer and Sirigu is one of Lazio’s top options to replace him, with a deal becoming even more accessible should Genoa be relegated this season.
Another option is Spezia’s Ivan Provedel, but for now Sirigu seems to be the preferred option, being a more experienced player with an international CV.
The 35-year-old Italian goalkeeper has made 32 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 2880 minutes. In that time, he’s conceded 52 goals and helped the side keep nine clean sheets.
