Everton are keen on Manchester United star Sergio Romero

According to the Mirror, Everton are interested in Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero.

Brought in by Louis van Gaal, the Argentine has now been at the club for five years. He has proven himself to be a capable backup to first-choice custodian David de Gea.

Carlo Ancelotti is keen to bring in competition for under-fire keeper Jordan Pickford. Given the performances Romero has put in, it is easy to see why he has emerged as a target. (h/t Mirror)

With the impressive Dean Henderson now back at the club, Romero is arguably the third choice player goalkeeper at the club.

The Toffees are not the only team interested in the 33-year-old. Premier League newcomers Leeds United, led by Marcelo Bielsa, are also keen on Romero. (h/t Mirror)

Given the rivalry between United and Leeds, it remains to be seen if a deal between the clubs can be agreed on. On the other hand, we have made a number of deals with Everton in recent years.

Romero has just 12 months to go on his £70,000-a-week contract. But there does exists the option of extending it by another year.

Selling him this summer will bring curtains on a stint as one of the best backup keepers in the league. Romero has made 61 appearances for United, keeping an impressive 39 clean sheets. (h/t Transfermarkt)
