West Ham’s new manager Manuel Pellegrini quickly needs to address his problem area in this summer transfer window, which means signing a new goalkeeper should be a priority.
The Hammers need a new face to challenge Adrian for the number one position and replace Joe Hart following his return to Manchester City after a loan spell.
One man that has to be considered is Manchester United’s Sergio Romero and he is good enough to become a mainstay in the starting XI at the London Staidum.
The Sun reports that the 31-year-old is planning his exit from Old Trafford this summer and that manage Jose Mourinho is “resigned” to losing him.
He has had to play second fiddle to the world-class David de Gea during his three-year stay with the club, but still managed to impress whenever called upon.
Romero has kept a stunning 25 clean sheets in 38 appearances for Man United and is far too good to be wasting away as a second-choice option.
He was set to feature for Argentina as their number one this summer at the World Cup, but unfortunately an injury has ended that dream.
However, West Ham should get straight on the phone to try persuade him to remain in England and offer him the chance to make the switch to the London Stadium.
Pelelgrini’s side should have the ambition to push back up towards the European positions and they could achieve that if they had excellent shot-stopper Romero in goal.
In other West Ham transfer news, Rangers are plotting a bid to sign an enforcer exiting the London Stadium this summer.
