Chievo Verona goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino hopes to be part of Italy's new squad under coach Cesare Prandelli.

The 31 year-old remains also keen on playing for a Champions League club.

Sorrentino said: "I read in Gazzetta that Prandelli is keeping me under observation and I hope that he calls me up. If it doesn't happen, I will try to deserve the Italy shirt in the future.

"The national team is my objective hopefully together with another adventure in the Champions League, this time with an Italian team after the experience with AEK Athens."
