Paris St Germain goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu says he is excited to see LA Galaxy ace David Beckham being linked with a move to the Ligue 1 side.
Former England captain Beckham is set to become a free agent in November following the expiry of his Major League Soccer contract with Galaxy.
The 36-year-old midfielder has been associated with a host of clubs, including Tottenham and QPR in the Premier League and big-spending Championship outfit Leicester.
Ligue 1 leaders PSG are another team who have made no secret of their desire to snap up the ex-Manchester United star.
And Sirigu, who arrived at the Parc des Princes from Palermo in the summer, believes Beckham would be a valuable addition to the side.
"I am fascinated by the possibility Beckham could join us," the Italian told PSG's official website. "He is still a good player, despite his age."
"I had the chance to play against him when he was at AC Milan. He is a player who could change the image of the club. Beckham's arrival would be very important for the club."
Sirigu says he is happy with his start to life in Paris, with PSG three points clear at the top of the standings.
"I make a positive assessment (of my time here so far)," he added. "We have been playing well so far and we must give our best every day."
"We have played some 15 matches and we need to remain focused."
