Shrewsbury Town goalkeeper Marko Marosi has attracted the interest of several EFL sides ahead of a possible transfer this summer, as reported by journalist Ollie Westbury from the Shropshire Star.
The Slovakian goalkeeper was the League One sides, first choice goalkeeper last season but after an impressive campaign, he could be set for a new challenge next season.
Who is Marko Marosi?
The 29-year-old is a product of the Wigan Athletic youth setup, first joining the clubs U21 in July 2013. He then experienced a five year stint with Doncaster Rovers, before completing a move to Coventry City in July 2019.
He remained at the club for two years, guiding them to the League One title in 2020, before featuring in the Championship. He joined Shrewsbury in June 2021 and has continued to deliver strong performances. Last season, Marosi made 49 appearances, keeping 10 clean sheets.
A fresh start at Shrewsbury
The League One side will head into the 2023/24 season with a new manager, following the parting of ways with Steve Cotterill. The club (at the time of writing) are yet to appoint his successor.
The club have also confirmed the departures of several first-team players, with the likes of Matthew Pennington and Tom Bloxham linked with moves away from the club.
What’s been said?
According to the Shropshire Star, Marosi has attracted plenty of interest, as they state…
‘A host of EFL clubs are chasing the signature of Shrewsbury Town’s goalkeeper Marko Marosi this summer, the Shropshire Star understands.’
As a Coventry fan, I am a huge fan of Marko Marosi and I believe he has done an excellent job at Shrewsbury. Therefore, I would be surprised if he was to depart the League One side.
However, there could be a scenario in which the new manager wants a different goalkeeper. This would then see Marosi depart for a fresh face, but how likely or unlikely that is remains to be seen.
