He was then on the bench as Nice beat PSG. his former club, 3-2 at the Parc des Princes on Friday night. He has now officially joined Les Aiglons, who have not confirmed the length of the Italian’s contract. L’Équipe have, however, previously reported that Sirigu has signed a one-year deal with the club.

Sirigu will come in as a backup to Marcin Bulka, the number one who came to compete for Kasper Schmeichel’s position last season.
