Cagliari could draft in veteran goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino if Alessio Cragno needs to go under the knife.
Cagliari confirmed in a recent medical report that Cragno needed more tests on his shoulder, amidst fears he would require surgery.
If that happens to be the case, Corriere dello Sport reports Cagliari will swoop in for Sorrentino.
The 40-year-old is currently a free agent after leaving relegated Chievo over the summer.
He is one of the most experienced active players in Italy with 632 official appearances to his name.
