Lazio Opens A Negotiation With Sirigu As Reina Will Leave End Of This Season

Lazio is reported to have opened talks with veteran Genoa goalkeeper, Salvatore Sirigu as one of the efforts to find a new backup goalkeeper after Pepe Reina's contract expired at the end of this season.

According to reports by Italian newspaper La Repubblica, Lazio's current backup goalkeeper Pepe Reina is reportedly ready to leave the club at the end of this season when his contract expires.  His latest contract does include the option of an extension for one year if they qualify for Europe's Champions League this season, but the veteran Spanish goalkeeper will likely leave the Olimpico.

The Biancoceleste has therefore started looking for a replacement goalkeeper for Reina, and recent reports have revealed that they have had initial talks with Salvatore Sirigu regarding a possible free transfer next summer after his contract with Genoa expires.

The 35-year-old Italian goalkeeper has made 27 appearances in all competitions so far for a total of 2430 minutes.  In that period he conceded 47 goals and helped his team keep six clean sheets, and he has not missed a league game this season.  He is considered to be a reliable and experienced backup goalkeeper for the Roma club if Reina leaves next summer.

As for the main goalkeeper position, The Aquile have reportedly also held talks to extend Thomas Strakosha's contract if the Albanian goalkeeper is still willing to stay at the Olimpico.
