    Heard Palace offered him first team football, don't know if true.

    He’s coming in as a back up

    We have two choices in the summer - pay out massively for someone who could be first choice, get a back up and save the money for other areas

    Not for me.
    You can call him Carabao back up all you like, but he'll be on the bench for our CL games - or worse, Hugo has had injuries.

    A back-up keeper for early cup rounds and uses up one of the English player slots. He won't see significant playing time.

    Even as back up, we should really be doing some succession planning here. Regardless of whether it impacts on transfer budget Burnley have just got relegated, and we should be going all out to get Pope who can compete with Lloris now and takeover in the future. There would be no real drop in quality between the two and is homegrown….

    Pope is good on the Line and commanding in the air, but terrible with his feet, not sure how much importance Conte puts on that.

    Pope isn’t that much younger than Hugo
    He would be 31 by the time he took over (assuming he did)
    He is a great keeper and throws the ball a lot to make up for not passing like a Brazilian

    Like people say, Pope would not be great in our current team. He is a solid keeper but terrible under a press. Besides, What succession planning is really needed for keepers? When the time comes to replace Hugo then we will (Probably during a summer window when we will have plenty of time to find someone and bed them in during a preseason etc). I'm not hugely impressed by Forster but he was excellent at times earlier in his career and can't be any worse than some of Gazzaniga, Hart or Gollini's appearances.

    Forster in Scotland was top top drawer
    When he went back to Newcastle they never played him so he rejoined Celtic and had another 2 great seasons
    He is better than any recent cover we have had

    I'll defer to Paratici and Conte

    We’ve got Hugo for 2 more years.

    I’m a fan of Pope, but how much will he cost? Will he want to be a second choice for 2 seasons

    we have much more important issues at the moment

    I’m sure Forster has had a couple of really outstanding games this season. Would be ideal as back up, got to be better than Gollini.

    Seems to be breaking that he's opted to sign for Arsenal. Wants first team football apparently

    On the face of it there's no way he gets ahead of Ramsdale, who is a decent keeper.
    Maybe they've said he can play in their cup games and Europa league games. Where as Lloris will definitely be starting our European games.so he'll get more playing time at the gooners

    Maybe he's got his sights set on CF?

    Bit of a whatever signing, but fine, adequate. Good to get done if we wrap it up and can move on.

    Arse aren't in any major cup tournaments next season so they can play him in those games easily enough.
