The Southampton shot-stopper is currently nursing a knee injury (via The Guardian), but his performances for the Saints earlier on this campaign haven’t gone unnoticed.
Before his injury, Forster was a major part of a defensive rearguard which was the best in the Premier League.
With Champions League experience too, Forster could become a long-term No.1 at a top club.
