Many Everton fans have been buzzing as the Daily Express reported that Chelsea have made Jordan Pickford their number one transfer target to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga in the upcoming summer window.
Should Pickford be sold by Everton in the summer?
As per the outlet, Frank Lampard may choose to loan out the Spanish keeper for two years with an option of a permanent deal at the end of the spell.
Valencia are in the running to sign the 25-year old, which could pave way for Pickford to move to Stamford Bridge.
Comparing the two goalkeepers in the Premier League so far in the 2019/20 season, the English international has a better clean sheet ratio than Kepa, having kept eight shutouts in 31 games (roughly 25.8 per cent) compared to the Spaniard’s six in 27 (roughly 22.2 per cent).
Based off of these stats, perhaps it is not a surprise that Chelsea have looked at the 26-year old to replace Kepa, however EFC supporters seem happy to let him go too.
Having also made three errors leading to goals in the top flight so far in this campaign, these Toffees buzzed upon reading that Pickford may be leaving them:
Too good to be true.
