“We need a new goalkeeper”, shout the Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern.
It is fair to say that they have not been impressed by the performances of Maarten Stekelenburg or Joel Robles this season.
In order to progress, the Everton fans argue, they need a top class goalkeeper who can win them matches.
Many Everton fans in the Tavern believe that Jordan Pickford is the solution to their goalkeeper problem.
So they will delighted to hear the recent news that they have lodged a £10m bid for the Sunderland goalkeeper, according to The Mirror.
A host of Premier League clubs are poised to make summer moves for Pickford with West Ham, Tottenham, Newcastle and Liverpool also thought to be in the running.
Everton are keen to land the England under-21 international – who has also spent time with the senior England squad – so they have made the first move.
Championship-bound Sunderland are preparing for a number of high profile exits but they are unlikely to accept a £10m offer for the 23-year-old star, who has been their standout performer this season.
This bid from Everton is to gauge an asking price from Sunderland as they prioritise the signing of Jordan Pickford this summer.
