Chievo fight Samp for Romero

Sampdoria and Chievo are battling it out on the transfer market for AZ Alkmaar and Argentina goalkeeper Sergio Romero.

The reports on Saturday suggested Romero had practically agreed a transfer to Serie B side Sampdoria.

However, according to Sky Sport Italia, Chievo have joined the race and could well pip them to the post.

The Flying Donkeys would be able to provide a Serie A platform, something the recently-relegated Blucerchiati could not.

In turn, Chievo need a new goalkeeper because Stefano Sorrentino has been in talks with Palermo for several weeks.

Still only 24, Romero is first choice in the Argentina goal and it would be a big step down to play in Serie B.
