Having completed his loan stay at Everton last season, Robin Olsen returned to AS Roma, where his future seems to be far from certain following Rui Patrício’s summer arrival from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

On August 12th, ForzaRoma stated Sheffield United are looking at the goalkeeper as a potential successor to Aaron Ramsdale.

Ramsdale has already completed a switch to Arsenal, while there has been no movement in the Blades’ efforts to sign the 31-year-old.

The Sweden international has two years left on his contract and the Toffees are said to have joined several other sides, like Atlético Madrid, Real Sociedad, Valencia, Lille, OGC Nice and Rennes, looking to sign Olsen on a loan deal.

That’s according to SportExpressen, who relay claims made in Italy about Roma wanting to offload the custodian before the window closes.

Rafael Benítez’s side and other clubs ‘want to borrow’ the keeper with an option to buy, but none of them have managed to find an agreement with the Giallorossi.

That’s because Roma want to sell Olsen for a fee between 50m kroner [€4.9m] to 60m kroner [€5.8m] this summer.

José Mourinho’s side are aware the player’s price tag will reduce drastically in 2022, when he will have a year left on his contract. Therefore, they want to cash in from his sale before the window closes.

It remains to be seen whether Everton or any other club interested in Olsen are ready to meet Roma’s demands.
