The next one’s a goalie

We sign Albanian international keeper Thomas Strakosha on a free transfer from Serie A club Lazio. He was also a target for Man U (but they did get Christian Eriksen). A good shot stopper but like many non-UK keepers doesn’t catch the ball but palms it away (unfortunately sometimes into the path of onrushing forwards). I hope he has good distribution skills and is capable of playing the ball out from the back. It’s probably inevitable that David Raya will be poached by a bigger club at some stage of next season. Plus we have England under-19 Euro winning keeper Matthew Cox. Last season we signed keeper Lossl and I was confident that he would make good saves from the opposition players but what really concerned me was the way he controlled the pass backs from our players that could easily have led to a goal.
