Palermo keeper flattered by Roma link

The Italy international has long been linked with a move away from Palermo, but his contract with the club expires in the summer of 2014.

“There hasn’t been any official contact with Roma’s directors, but I have to say that my client would be very flattered by any interest on Roma’s behalf,” Pallavicino said.

“Any eventual deal would be facilitated by the good relations between Maurizio Zamparini and the Roma directors. Moreover, selling Sirigu would represent a nice bit of business on the transfer market for the Palermo President from a financial point of view.”
