Leeds interested in Romero.

Leeds United may have just tied down the permanent signing of goalkeeper Ilan Meslier from Lorient for £5 million however they look to be in the market for another stopper.

According to Argentinean TV station TyC Sports, Marcelo Bielsa is interested in bringing Sergio Romero to Elland Road this summer from Manchester United.

Romero is widely regarded as one of the best back-up goalkeepers in the Premier League. However, he has largely been limited to appearances in cup competitions since his arrival in 2015.

The 33-year-old’s contract is up at the end of next season with United reportedly holding out for an extension however Romero could be tempted by Leeds, especially if Dean Henderson returns from his loan spell at Sheffield United.

The report outlines that Gunners chiefs believe they can get a deal done for Willian whose contract expires at Chelsea on July 26th.

Manchester United are said to also be keeping tabs on the winger who will likely see himself fall down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge if he were to stay with the arrival of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner.

Talks over a contract extension for Willian have stalled but with the Brazilian happy living in London a move to Arsenal may be the ideal switch.
