If Joel Robles were a reserve keeper for Atlético Madrid we'd be talking about buying him to Everton for 15 mills.

Realistically I would play him this season and I think he is slowly getting better and better with more experience.

He may be getting better than he was last season (and I think the new GK coach is a massive part of this), but he's still nowhere near the level we want if we're serious about being CL (and more) contenders.

5 years ago he was eaqually as good as De Gea and Courtois.  All three were at Atlético Madrid at one time.  They have developed into world class goalies and he might just might be a late developer... just saying...

Obviously not as one was only on loan there from Chelsea, one went to United for big money and one went to fucking Wigan on loan then Everton for peanuts.

Sounds like an alternative ending to the 3 little piggies.

Doesn't Atlético still have an option to buy him back?

Paul Gerrard was at Everton at the same time as Neville Southall, does that mean he's automatically a great keeper like you're saying with Joel and De Gea?

Mattia Perin was at least a few years ago the next big thing and successor to Buffon.

From the Germans, Leno is I think most highly regarded but that's why he wouldn't have a shortage of suitors. Horn was compared to Karius just last season and Karius hasn't exactly been pulling up trees in the PL so far. Having said that Horn should be a good signing.

Geronimo Rulli, Jack Butland, Sergio Rico and Anthony Lopes have the potential to be top class keepers for a long time.

I would go and try to Butland even at a premium price. He's already proven he's a top keeper in the Premier League over more than one season. Assuming he can clear off his injuries. Perin would be my second choice and Horn probably third, assuming Leno is out of reach.

The top of my "completely unrealistic" list is Gianluigi Donnarumma at Milan. He may cost £40-50M, though, and he's not even 18 until March. I'd hesitate on Perrin until he's proven healthy, unless there's a bargain deal to be had. Butland is proven at the PL level, but he's been injured as well.

Foreign keepers are always a risk, IMHO because of the physical side of our game and them having to cope with a lot of crosses.

I always think with a keeper a good steady one who keeps the mistakes to a minimum is a better option than a flashy keeper who is prone to a mistake. Butland or Forster for me, both shown consistency with some moments of brilliance and hardly any mistakes.

Forster for me.
Have to say though, I can see a very good keeper in Joel Robles. Never thought I'd say that. In fact only a year ago I'd have binned him without a second thought - in fact he worried me every time he started.
Recently though, I get the feeling I may have to eat my original words regarding him and quite frankly I hope he makes me do so.
