Argentine Sergio Romero is being linked with a move to Liverpool as a replacement for recently departed Pepe Reina, adding strength to the goalkeeper options at Brendan Rodgers’ disposal.
The 27-year-old, who was named on FIFA’s Golden Glove shortlist at the World Cup, is currently contracted to Italian side Sampdoria but spent last season on loan to French club Monaco.
They had an option to make the deal permanent for €5 million this summer but have declined the opportunity, with Romero having made only nine appearances as backup to Croatian stopper Danijel Subaši?.

With only a year remaining on his contract at Sampdoria, Romero is set to leave the club this summer and would be available at a good price.
Bizarrely, Romero’s long passing is described as one of his weaknesses by stats website WhoScored, surely Liverpool wouldn’t sign another keeper who struggles with the ball in possession?
Would Romero be a good addition at Liverpool? Let us know below.
