Tzorvas to make Udinese move
- Updated: July 30, 2012
Named among the worst transfers of 2011, Palermo ‘keeper Alexandros Tzorvas has been linked with a sensational move to UEFA Champions League hopefuls Udinese as the Greek international looks to return to the form that won him praises at Panathinaikos…
Alexandros Tzorvas will be looking to put a difficult season behind him when Serie A football kicks-off later this month, but according to reports from Italy on Monday the Greek international might not get the chance to prove his Palermo critics wrong as a sensational transfer to league rivals Udinese is reportedly on the cards this summer.
The former Panathinaikos shot-stopper was mentioned in a report released by La Gazzetta dello Sport as Udinese looks to fill the void between the sticks following the sale of Samir Handanovic to Inter Milan and and the nerve-racking injury to expected starter Zeljko Brkic. Other names highlighted in the report include Juventus back-up Alex Manninger.
For Tzorvas, a move away from the Sicilian club would provide a fresh start after a disastrous first season in Italy where a shaky Palermo back-line was partly responsible for Tzorvas’ struggles with the Rosanero. With Udinese set to compete in the play-off round of the UEFA Champions League, the Northeastern Italian club provides an attractive destination for Tzorvas despite the departure of many key players this season.
