Fiorentina after Sirigu

Paris Saint-Germain's Salvatore Sirigu is set for a return to Italy and Fiorentina may be his new home.

The 29-year-old enjoyed his debut at Euro 2016 yesterday evening for the Azzurri, albeit in the unfortunate 1-0 defeat to the Republic of Ireland.

Sirigu is currently finding little space for himself in Paris, as he managed an appearance in only three games, and spent the rest of the time in the shadow of starting goalkeeper Kevin Trapp.
