Sirigu ‘ready to listen’ to exit offers

Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu is at the point where he will listen to any club that offers more regular football than what he currently gets at Parc des Princes.

The Italy international has slipped down the pecking order in goal for PSG following the off-season arrival of Kevin Trapp from Eintracht Frankfurt, having previously been first-choice for the French champions.

Sirigu made only his second appearance of the campaign on Wednesday for Laurent Blanc's side as they beat Saint-Etienne 1-0 to advance to the Coupe de la Ligue quarter-finals.

And the 28-year-old admitted he will discuss any potential offers with his agent in a bid to seek more game-time with Euro 2016 coming up in June next year.

"When you're in my situation, you're ready to listen to everything that comes," Sirigu told Le Parisien.

"It's normal, but for the moment I'm a PSG player. If there are offers, I'll talk with my agent and the club and we'll decide what's best for me."

Sirigu also vehemently denied claims that he refused to play against Shakhtar Donetsk last week in the Champions League, although Blanc had revealed he left the keeper out of the squad to prevent him from being cup-tied if he chose to leave in January.

"The coach already explained it – I won't say any more about it," he insisted. "What annoys me is that certain people are talking without knowing the truth… I would never refuse to play a match.

"The coach spoke to me and if he had said to me: 'I want you to play', do you think that I would have said no? You can say that I'm rubbish, that I'm worthless, but not that I'm not professional."
