Merseyside giants Everton are reportedly eyeing Manchester United shot stopper Sergio Romero as a back-up goalkeeper to Jordan Pickford at the club.

Jordan Pickford is the number one goalkeeper for both Everton and the England national team but he has come under scrutiny in recent weeks.

His performance during the Carabao Cup third round win at Fleetwood Town didn’t help the attention on him at all as the former Sunderland goalkeeper was at fault for the two goals conceded by Everton during the game which ended in a seven-goal thriller.

Everton were able to book their place in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup with a 5-2 win over their hosts.

The Daily Mail revealed that Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti and his director of football Marcel Brands want to sign a new goalkeeper to provide competition for Jordan Pickford. The new goalkeeper is expected to start as a back-up to Pickford.

The Everton officials believe that Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero is the right man for the job as he has dropped to third choice at Old Trafford following the arrival of Dean Henderson.

English shot stopper Henderson is back at Manchester United after a two-year loan spell at Sheffield United.
