Arsenal’s reported interest in Chelsea goalkeeper has been well documented and as much as Arsene Wenger tries to deny it, there is no smoke without fire (via the Mirror).
While a deal to bring the shot-stopper remains a possibility, the fact that we’re dealing with a team managed by Jose Mourinho should fill us with slight trepidation.
But fear not, because we’ve compiled a list of five alternative keepers capable of boosting our chances of Premier League success next season.
5. Fraser Forster

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.
