Roma look to Stekelenburg

Roma continue their search for a goalkeeper and, after Sergio Romero, turn their attention to Maarten Stekelenburg.

It is well known that Alexander Doni is on his way out of the Stadio Olimpico, most likely towards Liverpool, while Julio Sergio is wanted by Genoa.

New Coach Luis Enrique wants a strong shot-stopper to be guarding the sticks and several names have already been mentioned.

The favourite had been AZ Alkmaar's Argentina international Sergio Romero.

According to the Corriere dello Sport this morning, Stekelenburg is the new prime suspect.

He brings international experience at Ajax and Holland, while his contract expires in June 2012, so he'll be available for just €8m.

Stekelenburg is considered to be one of the best goalkeepers in the world and had also been linked with Manchester United.

The same newspaper suggests John Arne Riise will return to the Premier League for Newcastle United.

His replacement at left-back could well be Arsenal's Gael Clichy, who is also of interest to Juventus.
