Liverpool remain favourites for the signature of Argentina’s World Cup goalkeeper Sergio Romero, who has turned down a move to Dynamo Moscow as he waits on a switch to Anfield.
A £1.6m fee between Liverpool and Romero’s club Sampdoria had reportedly already been agreed, before the Russian side made their advance – but no further progress has been made on the deal.
Brendan Rodgers’ side are currently concentrating their efforts on the signing of AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli, but the Daily Mirror understand that the Reds are still in pole position to land the 27-year-old.
The source explains that, according to Il Secolo, the keeper didn’t fancy a move to Russia and now Liverpool could move to bring him to Anfield to challenge Simon Mignolet.
Romero spent last season on loan at French side AS Monaco, but made just three league appearances as he played a back-up role to Croatian star Danijel Subašic.
The Argentine has made 61 appearances for Sampdoria since joining them in 2011, but it’s for his country that he has put in his best performances, helping them reach the World Cup final with a series of excellent displays. He has been capped 54 times in total since his debut in 2009.
Liverpool have already signed eight players this summer, but have also been linked heavily with a move for former Chelsea, Inter Milan and Barcelona forward Samuel Eto’o, as well as ex-Manchester City man Balotelli.
