Romero joined Juventus from Genoa in 2019 but returned to his former club on loan. In the following season, he moved to Atalanta on a two-year loan with the option to make the deal permanent for €16 million.

The 23-year-old impressed at Atalanta as he helped Gian Piero Gasperini’s side to a third-place finish in Serie A. Romero was named Serie A Defender of the Year at the end of the 2020-21 campaign.
