Charlton Athletic have made an enquiry for Valencia's Bernardo Corradi, according to sources in Italy.

Addicks boss Alan Curbishley is keen to reinforce his squad in order to improve his team's consistency and the defeat to Blackburn Rovers will have only increased his resolve to make a move in the transfer market.

After going through a sticky patch under Claudio Ranieri in La Liga, Corradi claimed towards the end of last year that he was settling into life in Valencia.

He bagged his first UEFA Champions League goal against Anderlecht and has shown signs of his best form, attracting interest from Fiorentina.

The former Lazio striker joined Valencia with Stefano Fiore in a double deal and might be difficult to prise away from the Mestalla outfit.

Curbishley is rumoured to have made a loan enquiry for the 28-year-old but Valencia, who are on the brink of off-loading Mauricio Pellegrino to Liverpool, would presumably be looking to cover any potential departures.

i think this player corradi was actually quite good at lazio when he palyed there, and was expected to be good there,

will be interesting to see if he goes, and wether he does well?

It looks like Valencia may be willing to discuss a six-month loan deal, despite various other aspects of transfer talk at La Mestalla, but there is rival interest from Italy and The Premiership other than Charlton...

the manager curbs admits of interest

Charlton Athletic manager Alan Curbishley has confirmed he is keen on Valencia striker Bernardo Corradi.

The Italian forward's agent Moreno Roggi told earlier in the week that he has spoken to The Addicks.

Roggi expects to resume negotiations with the Premiership side on Monday, with Charlton willing to take Corradi on loan for the rest of the season.

Addicks chief Curbishley acknowledged he has talked with Roggi but does not appear sweet on his prospects of landing Corradi.

"I have spoken to his agent but there is nothing ongoing," commented Curbishley.

Corradi only joined Valencia last summer from Lazio but has struggled to establish himself with the reigning Spanish champions.

He did recently admit that he is starting to find his feet in La Liga but could be offered a route into The Premiership.

Curbishley will now have to wait to learn whether his efforts to land the Italy international will meet with success.
