Liverpool are reportedly interested in Argentina’s World Cup goalkeeping star Sergio Romero and have registered their interest in the goalkeeper with his club, Sampdoria, as reported by the Daily Star.
Italian outlet Sky Sport Italia have been suggesting that the Merseyside team are in initial negotiations for the transfer of the 27-year-old goalkeeper, who spent last season on loan with Ligue 1 club Monaco.
Reports also suggest that a deal between the Serie A side and Liverpool is close.
Liverpool seemingly see Romero as the ideal replacement for the recently departed Pepe Reina, who moved to Bayern Munich earlier this month. The Spanish international was only ever going to be kept in reserve to Simon Mignolet this season, and given Romero’s willingness to remain as the backup to Danijel Subasic at Monaco last season, he could be a good solution.
He has impressed, however, being nominated on the three-man shortlist for FIFA’s Golden Glove award at the World Cup.
Sampdoria will be willing to let Romero go, having signed Emiliano Viviano in his place.
