Premier League leaders Manchester City are reportedly lining up a shock move for Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster. This is according to the report from The Sun which claimed that the Citizens want to sign the veteran shot stopper as a back-up to undisputed first choice goalkeeper EdersonMoraes.

American goalkeeper Zack Steffen is the current second choice goalkeeper at Manchester City but the club wants to send him out on loan next season as doubts remain over his reliability whenever Ederson is absent from the team.

Steffen didn't do much to help his cause as he was partly at fault for the goal that stopped Manchester City from winning the quadruple this season. Chelsea stopped the dream of wining four trophies at Manchester City with the 1-0 win in their semi-final tie in the FA Cup last month. Hakim Ziyech was the recipient of the only goal of the game. The Blues will mow face Leicester City in the final of the competition this season.

American goalkeeper Steffen was given another opportunity in goal by manager Pep Guardiola during the Carabao Cup final win over North London giants Tottenham Hotspur. He kept a clean sheet as Manchester City beat Spurs 1-0 at the Wembley Stadium last month thanks to the late goal from Frenchman AymericLaporte.
Manchester City have now won the last four editions of the Carabao Cup. In addition, they have won six of the last eight editions.

Ben Foster is on the payroll of Watford who secured promotion to the Premier League ahead of next season. Norwich City and Watford are the two teams for the English top flight next season from the Championship this season with a third team set to join them via the playoffs. Ben Foster has played 22 times for Watford this season.
