I have but I don't judge players based on a couple of weeks.

How's he done for Levante?

You can get a pretty decent idea that he's a decent keeper. Doubt anyone watches enough of Levante to make a significantly stronger analysis apart from Gooney.

With all due respect, I've seen the type of players you rate and don't rate and whilst I respect your opinion, it's usually completely bizarre.

If we went by World Cup, we should buy some Algerians especially their keeper.

No one is saying we should sign him, just that you get an idea that he's a pretty capable goalkeeper.

13th of May 2012 Arsenal beat West Brom 3-2 to finish 3rd ahead of Newcastle. Gooney is still yet to leave the forum...

Gooney is the master scout. He is a renowned Japanese High School football expert where he albeit self-admittedly was responsible for scouting Ryo Miyaichi. Therefore one must assume Gooney's vast array of footballing contacts is prominent in Spain and he is well read on Keylor Navas.

Costa Rica's Keylor Navas, 27, could be set for a move to the Premier League this summer after Arsenal joined Liverpool in the race for the Levante goalkeeper. Daily Star

Statistically, the best keeper in La Liga. He managed 160 saves from 196 shots, for a total of 80.1% save percentage.
For reference, Valdés managed 69 saves from 90 shots (76.7%) and Courtois managed 70 saves from 94 shots (74.5%).

This info was taken from the official La Liga site http://www.ligabbva.com/2544_liga-bbva/2551225_keylor-navas-termina-la-temporada-como-mejor-portero-de-la-liga-bbva.html

He pulls this kind of saves week in and week out:

The Spanish press widely considers him one of the top keepers in the world. In la Liga, some say Courtois is the best, some say it's him.

Linked with Porto, Atlético, Real Madrid and Bayern München in the last couple of weeks. He won't go to Bayern, that's for sure. He is too good to seat on a bench. So, I don't expect him to come here, unless he is guaranteed to be a starter, and that'd be unfair to Szczesny. We can get a cheaper goalie who is ok with playing cups and a back up role.

By the looks of things, Navas will end up playing for Atlético.
