Everton plotting swoop for Man United outcast Sergio Romero

The Toffees are trying to raise the bars for inconsistent Jordan Pickford.

Everton have now identified their next transfer target after a string of new signings this summer.

According to reports, Everton are considering a move for Manchester United third-choice goalkeeper Sergio Romero so they can enhance the competition for Jordan Pickford.

The English shot-stopper has become inconsistent of late, recently producing an error-prone display against Fleetwood Town in Carabao Cup. Despite being the undisputed starter for the Three Lions national team, Pickford hasn’t been impressive at the club level under Carlo Ancelotti for last few months.

Now, the Toffees are willing to bring Man Utd outcast Sergio Romero to strengthen the goalkeeping options.

Often being called as the best back-up keeper in Europe, Romero has failed to make the cut with Man Utd first-team over the course. Furthermore, the addition of Dean Henderson has pushed the Argentine down the pecking order of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Romero has a year left in his contract, and the Red Devils could be forced to sell him before he departs for free. At the same time, the Argentine keeper could also be entertained with the offer from Everton after growing weary over the lack of game time.

Romero’s best time at Old Trafford came during Jose Mourinho’s reign as the Argentine goalkeeper played a pivotal role behind United’s Europa League win in 2017/18.

The Toffees have so far signed the likes of James Rodriguez, Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure and all are proving to be productive.
