Former Manchester United shot-stopper Sergio Romero looks set to finally land himself a new club.
Romero left the Red Devils over the summer, ending his six-year stay at Old Trafford, where he had played second fiddle to David de Gea.
And despite still being selected for Argentina during his Old Trafford stint, the 34-year-old's appearances at United were often limited to cup ties.
However, Romero doesn't look set to be out of the game long, with Serie A new boys Venezia closing in on his signature.
According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Venezia are in the final stages of their talks with the keeper.
Romano tweeted: "Former Man Utd goalkeeper Sergio Romero is set to join Serie A side Venezia as a free agent.
Negotiations at final stages – also Spezia wanted him, but Venezia are leading the race to complete the deal soon."
With both sides interested in the Italian, it would be Romero's second stint in Italy's top tier.
The 34-year-old previously spent four years with Sampdoria, between 2011 and 2015, with a season on loan at Monaco.

Venezia, on the other hand, reached Serie A for the first time in 19 years over the summer.
The Leoni Alati resided in the depths of Serie D, Italy's fourth tier, which is also semi-professional, just five years ago, and their promotion to Serie A was the final chapter of a meteoric rise.
It is the first time the side have reached Italy's top tier in their latest incarnation after the side was re-founded in 2015 following bankruptcy.
Venezia had already made headlines over the summer with their eye-catching new kits.
However, Romero won't be packing his bags just yet, and the Argentine has already seen a plethora of moves fall through.
Twice to Everton, while Granda and Valencia were unable to secure his signature, and financial constraints at Roma stopped a reunion with Jose Mourinho.
