Robin Olsen: Everton in talks with Roma over move for goalkeeper

Everton are in advanced talks with Roma over a move for goalkeeper Robin Olsen.

The 30-year-old joined Roma in 2018 after helping Sweden reach the quarter-finals of the World Cup, where they were eliminated by England.

  • Why Everton wanted Godfrey

He moved to the Italian capital as a replacement for Allison, who had earlier joined Liverpool in a £67m deal.

Olsen spent last season on loan at Cagliari with Pau Lopez being preferred in goal by Roma boss Paulo Fonseca.

The Swede will provide competition for Jordan Pickford, who has made a number of high-profile errors recently.


Everton had been linked with a move for Manchester United keeper Sergio Romero and Paulo Gazzaniga from Tottenham.
