If we can't get Pope as number 2 then we need to adjust the squad in a way that Forster can be our 3 and we get the best available number 2, aged 23 or under who can deputise to Hugo for a year then takeover regardless of passportFor the PL we need 8 HG and 17 foreigners
For UEFA we need 8 HG of which 4 need to be club trained and 4 Association trained
For uefa Davies u21 football was at Swansea and thus he is HG for the Welsh FA. Dier played at Sporting so he is Portugal HG. Reportedly Winks (club) will be sold. Dele already gone. Rodon like Davies is not HG in Europe for us, while Tanganga (club) is probably loaned out.
These are our PL/UEFA eligible HG players. Some of which may leave hence why Forster will be no.2 and why Sterling, JWP are on our list. We can’t buy too many foreigners this window
Not feasible. Pickford is not leaving his starting position at Everton to sit on our bench. With a WC 6 months away that’d virtually lose him his place as Eng no.1. Ditto Pope, will likely be in the squad for the WC so sitting on a bench jeopardises that. Going somewhere to be no.1 gets him a WC squad spot.
