After making his Euro 2016 debut on Wednesday evening, Salvatore Sirigu may also be about to begin playing for a new club. According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Fiorentina have opened negotiations with his current club Paris Saint-Germain and hope to agree terms quickly with the goalkeeper.

Sirigu joined the Ligue 1 side from Palermo in 2011 and has won no fewer than twelve trophies, but found himself pushed out of the starting XI after the arrival of Kevin Trapp, making just three league starts last term.

The 29-year-old has now played for the Azzurri on 17 occasions, firmly establishing himself as the backup to Captain Gigi Buffon and appears to view a return to Serie A as the next logical step in his career.

Writing on his own website, Italian transfer expert Di Marzio believes that the desire for more playing time is the driving force behind Sirigu's decision and confirms that the Viola have begun talks.
