Cagliari plan reinforcements

After reportedly agreeing a deal to sign promising striker Moestafa El Kabir from Mjallby, Cagliari aim to sign a centre-back and a midfielder.

Cagliari are keen to strengthen the spine of the team before next season, possibly with the proceeds that come from selling goalkeeper Federico Marchetti for €5.2m.

Il Corriere dello Sport understands Roberto Donadoni has his sights set on a promising defender from Serie B, even though Cagliari already have several centre-backs in their squad.

However, it's believed that Michele Canini will be converted into a left-sided midfielder after successful experiments in that position so far this season.

As for central midfield, Cagliari are aware that Andrea Cossu isn't getting any younger and have given a trial to 19-year-old Uruguayan playmaker Pablo Ceppelini.

Ceppelini has been training with the first team and looks set to win a professional contract, although his integration will be gradual.
