Pope's really underrated. As well as being genuinely elite at dealing with crosses and shot-stopping (PSXG-GA), he's also second only to Alisson in most sweeper metrics - something he doesn't get much credit for.if he doesn't, all in on Pope.
I like Sanchez at Brighton too. Obviously Donnarumma's great, and likely available for the right money.
For my money though, David Soria's been the best keeper in Europe this season. Every time I've watched Getafe this season he's stood out hugely, and stat-wise he excels at everything you'd want. He's 28 in a couple of weeks, which maybe goes against him (although he's younger than Emi Martinez) - but he's an unbelievably good sweeper keeper while also being Schmeichel-levels of physically imposing in 1v1s. He's statistically the best in Europe at dealing with crosses - both frequency and success rates. He also has a really unique distribution style.
