Inter linked Hellas Verona goalkeeper Marco Silvestri is also being pursued by Cagliari and Genoa, according to reports.

This from today’s print edition of Genoa-based newspaper La Reppublica, who report that the two Serie A clubs could look to bring in Silvestri to replace their first-choice goalkeepers should they depart.

Inter are considering the 30-year-old former Leeds United shot-stopper as a second-choice keeper behind Number One Samir Handanovic, having already brought in Alex Cordaz from Crotone as the third-choice option.

The situation of 24-year-old Romanian Andrei Radu with the Nerazzurri next season also remains to be seen.

Should Genoa lose Mattia Perin, or Cagliari lose Alessio Cragno, then Silvestri might be tempted by the prospect of regular starting appearances after he impressed as the Number One at Verona last season.

At Inter, on the other hand, the Italian would likely be a backup to first-choice Handanovic, who has held down the starting place at the Giuseppe Meazza since joining from Udinese in 2012.
