With no other goalkeeper really linked, it seems Willy Caballero could be our new second-choice.

As stated in the Random Rumours thread, I see him as pretty much the perfect choice to replace Begović. Hope it gets done.

It's a step down from Begovic, but since we need a back up for Courtois, I guess we could do worse.

I don't think he is, maybe he isn't better than Asmir but he is certainly better to play the role we require than the Bosnian was.

Begovic was decent when he had to play for those few months under Jose's meltdown, but he was in his comfort zone, his whole career he has been number 1 for mid table to relegation threatened sides and for all intent's and purposes his spell when Courtois was out was no change for him. Season just gone however was his first experience playing for a team challenging at the top and when called upon he looked scared almost, i'd love to know what his save% was in the games he played because i reckon it's similar to Bravo's.

Willy knows what it takes to be the backup at the title challenging club and for that role is an upgrade on Begovic.
