Foster may not be a long term option for the Blues, but is a young buck compared to current No.1 Willy Caballero, who turns 39 in September.

The report of Chelsea’s interest in Foster may seem a little far-fetched, but not beyond the realms of possibility. However, The Sun go on to lose all credibility by suggesting Lampard is also interested in offering Joe Hart a deal. Come on, guys.

Foster is also shortlisted at Everton by Carlo Ancelotti who wants some competition for Jordan Pickford, who has endured a tough season at Goodison Park.
