Liverpool are reportedly looking to sign goalkeeper Sergio Romero from Serie A club Sampdoria.

According to the Express, the Reds could complete the deal today as the Italian club are willing to sell their goalkeeper.

Brendan Rodgers has been looking for a top-quality keeper to come in and push current number one Simon Mignolet, especially since the departure of Pepe Reina to Bayern Munich earlier in the summer.

The 27-year-old goalkeeper was impressive during Argentina's run to the finals in the summer's World Cup in Brazil.

Romero, who played every minute of Argentina's games during the World Cup, was also among the nominees for the Golden Glove, given to the top goalkeeper of the tournament.

The Argentine international, who has 54 caps for his country, spent last season on loan at AS Monaco, but the Ligue 1 club have decided not to make the deal permanent, opening the door for Liverpool to sign the goalkeeper.

However, the Daily Mail reports that Liverpool are looking to take Romero on loan from the Serie A club and not on a permanent deal.

The Northern Irishman has been the busiest manager in England as he has already brought in seven players, and has indicated that he is looking to add further depth to the squad.

Meanwhile, the Anfield club's goalkeeping coach John Achterberg feels that the communication and understanding developing between goalkeeper Mignolet and new signing Dejan Lovren, will help Liverpool's defence become more robust in the upcoming Premier League season.

"It's very important for any defender and goalkeeper that communication works well between them," Achterberg told Liverpool's official site.

"They are already training together. If you play as a centre-half in any team, most rules are the same. You are just learning from each other and looking at the movement of each other to pick up the right positions," the Reds goalkeeping coach added.
