Salvatore Sirigu will not leave PSG this summer despite Trapp signing - agent

Salvatore Sirigu made 34 Ligue 1 starts for PSG in 2014-15.
Salvatore Sirigu's position is under threat despite three strong seasons at the Parc des Princes.

Salvatore Sirigu's agent insists the Italy international will not leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer despite the arrival of Kevin Trapp in the French capital.

Sirigu, 28, jetted off with the rest of the PSG squad on Wednesday for their preseason tour of North America where he is likely to find himself behind Trapp in coach Laurent Blanc's goalkeeping plans.

Valencia are reportedly considering a move for Sirigu, who is under contract at PSG until 2018.

However, his agent, Carlo Pallavicino, told Radio Olympia the former Palermo man's heart remains in Paris.

"He feels very good in Paris. He's been the best goalkeeper in the French league for the last three years," Pallavicino said.

"Offers and approaches are the order of the day, because we're talking about a major element of the Squadra Azzurra's defence. But as I have said before, PSG have no intention of letting him go."

Pallavicino's words contradict those of PSG's deputy sporting director, Olivier Letang, who stated at Trapp's official unveiling earlier this week that Sirigu would be able to leave the Ligue 1 champions if he was unhappy with the signing of 25-year-old Trapp from Eintracht Frankfurt.

Unable to establish himself in midfield in the face of fierce competition for places, Yohan Cabaye has already left PSG, returning to England to join Crystal Palace.

Meanwhile, Tottenham's Benjamin Stambouli could be making the journey in the opposite direction to replace the former Newcastle United man in PSG's ranks.

RMC reported on Wednesday that last season's Champions League quarterfinalists and the ex-Montpellier man had agreed personal terms on a four-year contract.

Stambouli, 24, moved to Spurs only last summer, but featured in just 12 Premier League games during the 2014/15 campaign.

The two clubs have yet to agree a fee for the Marseille-born midfielder with PSG having offered €6.5 million while Spurs are seeking closer to €8-9 million, but a deal is expected to be agreed upon over the weekend or early next week.
