Foster linked with surprise Chelsea move

Veteran Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster has been linked with a surprise move to Chelsea.

Everton are also said to be interested in the 37-year old.

Despite his age, and the fact that Watford have been relegated to the Championship, Foster is still widely regarded as one of the best keepers in England.  And that may seem him earn a high profile move this summer.

He is not regarded as a long-term remedy to either club’s goalkeeping problems, but represents a high quality short term fix.

Chelsea are looking to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga, who has failed to justify the world record fee paid for someone in his position. They have been linked with moves for Atlético Madrid’s Jan Oblak and Ajax’s André Onana, but, if they cannot get either of those, may be ready to turn to Foster instead.

If he did join the club, Foster would compete for the number one jersey with another veteran, 38-year-old Willy Caballero.

Everton are looking to bring in somebody to provide competition to England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, who had a poor campaign between the sticks at Goodison Park last season.
