The ‘keeper shares the same agent as Mario Balotelli, and this could help the deal to go through. The Reds need a new man between the sticks after recently dropping Mignolet for Brad Jones, only to have the Australian make mistakes on his return to the side.

The Argentina international impressed while in the side that made it to the 2014 World Cup final, and has also been linked to Manchester United in the months since as he used to play under their manager Louis van Gaal.

Former scout and director of football Tor-Kristian Karlsen believes that the 27-year-old could be a good fit for the Premier League were he to sign for the Merseyside club.

He said so in a series of tweets, explaining that Romero’s “aggressive” style could mean that he won’t need to adapt as much as most do to the rough and tumble of English football.

He also claimed that the Guillermo Ochoa rumours may not be true. Check them out below Liverpool fans…
