Many Everton fans have been lauding a transfer link to Sergio Romero as the Daily Mirror have reported that Carlo Ancelotti is interested in bringing the Manchester United ace to Goodison Park in the summer transfer window.
According to the outlet, the Italian boss would like to put pressure on his current number one between the sticks Jordan Pickford, who has not made the best of impressions.
Indeed, the England international shot-stopper has been heavily criticised for making multiple errors and as such has been linked with a possible move away to Frank Lampard’s Chelsea, which could pave the way for the 33-year old should he wish to sign.
Does Romero start for Everton over Pickford?
However, the Toffees are set to face competition from newly-promoted Premier League rivals Leeds United who are said to be monitoring his situation at Old Trafford.
Romero is thought to be frustrated with his game time with the Red Devils and may even be third choice for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team behind David De Gea and the returning Dean Henderson.
With a rather impressive 12 clean sheets in 17 matches for MUFC over all competitions in the 2019/20 term, coupled with the concession of only five goals (per Transfermarkt), the Argentine goalkeeper may well be a good addition to the Blues.
These EFC supporters lauded the link on Twitter, with one fan even claiming that Romero would be a ‘brilliant’ signing:
