Storari to Roma a 'joke'

The agent of Marco Storari has dismissed reports of a switch to Roma. "I think they want a foreign 'keeper," he stated.

The Juventus reserve is one of numerous names associated with the Giallorossi as they look for a new No 1.

However, his representative has cooled the transfer speculation regarding a move south for his client.

"It seems to be a bit far out there to even talk about," Claudio Vigorelli told "Storari to Roma seems to be the joke of the moment.

"There has never been any contact with Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini, also because I'm convinced that they want to sign a foreign goalkeeper and not an Italian.

"That's why there hasn't been any contact and why I believe it will be very difficult for a call to arrive.

"At least that is what I hear from the people in Rome who know about these things."

It is understood that Ajax's Dutch international Maarten Stekelenburg, who has just a year left on his contract, is their top target.

However, Idriss Carlos Kameni of Espanyol remains an option, as does AZ's Argentine 'keeper Sergio Romero.
