Brendan Rodgers has been linked with the Argentine goalkeeper for a while, and the two clubs have now agreed a deal for Romero's services, according to Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.

Rodgers will also be looking to find a quality back-up keeper to Simon Mignolet after selling Pepe Reina to Bayern Munich.
