Check in to Liverpool vs Southampton FC

Liverpool have reportedly opened talks with Serie A side Sampdoria as boss Brendan Rodgers seeks to land experienced keeper Sergio Romero according to the Metro.

The 27 year old Argentine was Alejandro Sabella’s first choice starter during this summer’s World Cup finals and displayed a fine run of form that helped his nation reach the World Cup finals.

Romero conceded just four goals in seven matches in Brazil but is apparently surplus to requirements at his Genoa based club, having spent last term on loan at AS Monaco, and could be signed for as little as £2m.

Brendan Rodgers is desperate to bring in a keeper who can challenge Simon Mignolet for the starting spot at Anfield and having failed with moves for Cardiff City’s David Marshall and Karl Darlow, who left Nottingham Forest for Tottenham, the Liverpool manager has set his sights on Romero.

Romero moved to Sampdoria in 2011 after impressing in Holland where he helped AZ Alkmaar to an Eredivisie title.

Liverpool have already signed Southampton trio Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren as well as Benfica’s Lazar Markovic, German youngster Emre Can, Belgian teen Divock Origi and are set to bring in Sevilla’s Alberto Moreno with Javier Manquillo being loaned in for good measure.
