Romero will join Monaco

The Gazzetta dello Sport claims Sampdoria’s Sergio Romero will complete a summer move to Monaco.

The goalkeeper’s agent met with the Principality club on Thursday to discuss personal terms and a deal was basically done.

There are just a few details to iron out before the Argentine’s switch to the Ligue 1 new boys can be made official.

Romero, 26, joined Doria in the summer of 2011 from AZ Alkmaar for a fee believed to be in the region of €3.5m.

Capped by Argentina, the shot-stopper appeared in 32 Serie A games last term.

Samp are now set to bring in a new ‘keeper with Palermo’s Stefano Sorrentino and Gianluca Pegolo of Siena possible options.
