Goalkeeping merry-go-round

Barcelona’s Samir Handanovic bid starts a goalkeeping merry-go-round with Federico Marchetti, Michael Agazzi, Milan, Inter, Lazio, Fiorentina and Cagliari.

This week it was reported that Barça offered €30m to tempt Inter shot-stopper Handanovic to Camp Nou.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, this is set to spark a series of negotiations and transfer moves around Serie A.

Milan are looking for Christian Abbiati’s successor and have set their sights on Lazio goalkeeper Marchetti, but he is also the prime target for Inter if Handanovic moves on.

Lazio are preparing an offer for Cagliari goalkeeper Agazzi if they lose Marchetti, but he too is much sought-after and also of interest to Fiorentina.

The Viola are considering a new holder of the gloves if Palermo do not lower the price-tag on loan man Emiliano Viviano.
