Everton have received encouraging news for Sergio Romero.

Its transfer deadline day and Everton have entered the arena with the agenda to sign a goalkeeper capable of challenging Jordan Pickford in goal. Since morning, names of Pau Lopez, Paulo Gazzaniga, Sergio Romero and Robin Olsen have been doing grounds. While the talks of Pau Lopez have died down, it appears Everton are making progress on the Romero front.

The 33 year old has been one of the strongest back up keepers in the Premier League and has delivered fantastic performances in the Red Devils shirt over the past five years. Sergio Romero has managed to keep 39 clean sheets in 61 games for Manchester United and was key player in their Europa League triumph in 2017.

He has just one year left on his current deal and is in no mood to pass time on the bench at the “Theatre of Dreams”. Everton have been interested in taking Sergio Romero on loan but Manchester United aren’t keen on letting him leave on loan and would prefer a permanent sale.

The Toffees want to sign the 33 year old to provide competition to Jordan Pickford, who has been criticized for becoming complacent due to the lack of competition.

The encouraging news for Evertonians is that Sergio Romero wants to join the Merseysiders before the end of the transfer window, as per Inside Futbol.

This has come at a time where his wife has lashed out at Manchester United demanding them to give him some respect and fulfil his wish to leave. This kind of social media pressure may force Manchester United into agreeing to a loan deal.

If I am given a choice between Sergio Romero and Robin Olsen, I’d pick Romero all day. The 33 year old has more Premier League experience, is solid and reliable at the back and has been error-free most of the times. The Argentine’s desire to move to Everton is clear and this could act as a major factor, late on the deadline day.
