Premier League clubs are tracking Lazio goalkeeper Federico Marchetti.

Il Tempo says Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester City are all watching the Italy international.

Reports in Italy suggest that Barcelona have identified Marchetti as one of three candidates, alongside Borussia Monchengladbach's Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Liverpool's Pepe Reina, to replace Victor Valdes in goal at the Camp Nou next season.

Manchester City have been heavily linked with a move as Manuel Pellegrini seeks competition for Joe Hart, while Arsenal also require a long-term back-up for Wojciech Szczesny with Emiliano Viviano only on loan.
