Manchester United keeper Sergio Romero is a must buy for Everton.

Manchester United star Sergio Romero is a must buy for Everton on transfer deadline day. With current Everton and England No.1 Jordan Pickford continuing his poor form from the end of last season, it is clear Everton need to buy a new goalkeeper to compete with Jordan Pickford and push him to improve.

Everton have been linked with 25-year-old AS Roma goalkeeper Paul Lopez. However, it is the experience of 33-year-old Romero that the Merseysiders badly need.

Romero has played 96 times for Argentina and was a star in the 2014 World Cup Final. He is widely regarded as the best back up keeper in the Premier League and boasts an excellent clean sheet record for Manchester United.

The Argentine international would also give The Toffees a different profile of goalkeeper. Sergio Romero is 6 feet 4 inches and would provide a greater presence in goal compared to Pickford, his brother is even a professional basketball player.

Having more height between the sticks could help avoid situations where Pickford has struggled to catch the ball during set pieces and open play, as seen during the Brighton game.

Romero was linked to Valencia earlier in the window, so the Toffees may face some competition for the signing. However, being the third choice behind David de Gea and Dean Henderson, means a move to Everton for more game time is a no brainer for both club and player.

Reports suggest Manchester United are keen for a permanent transfer whilst the Royal Blues want Sergio Romero on loan. Given that it is transfer deadline day this buy could be under time pressure.

But with transfers between Manchester United and Everton being the most frequent in premier league history (Tom Cleverly, Darron Gibson, Morgan Schneiderlin and Phil Neville have all followed this path with mixed success). It should be a relatively easy deal to negotiate even if it goes down to the wire.

With the Toffees currently sat top of the premier league there only weakness is in goal. The club must buy this Manchester United star player to improve their squad depth this season.
