Wolves goalkeeper Matija Sarkic is not on Coventry City’s list of potential targets this summer, despite being linked with a move to the Sky Blues, according to Coventry Live.
The Sky Blues are believed to be on the hunt for a new goalkeeper after allowing their number one Marko Marosi to leave the club and sign for Shrewsbury Town.
The 27-year-old made 20 league appearances for Coventry last season and kept three clean sheets before leaving for Shrewsbury. However, neither he nor Ben Wilson were able to steadily establish themselves at No. 1 last season.
Mark Robins’ side have been linked with a potential transfer for Sarkic this summer. It came after his loan with Shrewsbury Town last season in League One, where he managed to make 26 appearances and keep nine clean sheets in the process.

However, the latest report from Coventry Live revealed that the Sky Blues are not interested in taking a step for Sarkic this summer. This comes despite the fact that they are prioritizing the addition of a new goalkeeper in the transfer window.
Sarkic could have been a good potential addition for the Sky Blues this summer and it looks like he needs to move away from Wolves to get some consistent playing time under his belt. However, now it looks like the Sky Blues will focus their attention elsewhere as they seek a replacement for Marosi.
The 23-year-old has had a fairly solid League One season with Shrewsbury, but the keeper does not yet have enough league experience so it would have been risky to sign him and expect him to be he performs instantly in the Second English level.
Robins might think he needs a number one who is more experienced and proven in the Championship and that might be a wise move. Considering that neither Marosi nor Wilson are impressed enough to be considered the clear number one in the final quarter, it shows the Sky Blues need to sort out their goalie situation.
