Everton waved goodbye to goalkeeper Joel Robles this summer after five years at the Merseyside club and they need to act fast to bring in a solid replacement after his contract expired.
Jordan Pickford is the undisputed number one in the meantime at Goodison Park, but the Toffees now need a number two option going into next season and manager Marco Silva should target someone with Premier League experience.
One man that should crop up on the transfer radar is English shot-stopper Ben Foster, who was relegated to the Championship with West Bromwich Albion last season.
However, he has had a long successful career in the top flight and kept 74 clean sheets in 288 Premier League games.
Sky Sports report (Transfer Live blog, 1:56pm, Monday, July 2, 2018) that Watford are in talks with West Brom about signing Foster and that a fee could be around £2.5million.
Foster would be the perfect replacement for Joel at Everton and a safe pair of gloves to step into Pickford’s boots when required.
He is also an experienced 35-year-old goalkeeper that could pass on numerous tips to the England international, who is currently representing his country at the World Cup.
A number two goalkeeper is hardly a priority signing that fans think of when the transfer window opens, but there is no doubt Silva must fill the important gap in his squad and be prepared for the worst case scenario of a Pickford injury later down the line.
