The Toffees are reportedly linked to a move for Trabzonspor goalkeeper Ugurcan Cakir, and fans are already waving goodbye to Jordan Pickford.
According to Turkish outlet Fanatik (via Sport Witness), Everton are interested in the services of the 24-year-old shot-stopper, with Carlo Ancelotti apparently being a ‘big fan’ of his.
Trabzonspor would reportedly be looking for offers in the region of €30million (£26.2m) and the Blues must act fast if they want to pursue a move, as neighbours Liverpool are also monitoring Cakir’s situation. The Reds have already bid for the Turkey international in the past, having a €20m (£17.4m) offer rejected in the winter.
Should Jordan Pickford be Everton's first choice next season?
Everton fans have responded to the rumours and are analysing their current situation with Pickford as their first choice. Many are in agreement that the Englishman should be replaced after a large chunk of fans lost their patience with him over recent form. One supporter has called him a ‘liability’ whilst another has said he is ‘getting worse’.
He's far from good enough. The stats tell you he's a below average PL GK. On top of that he's brain dead. Not a great combo!
Replace and quick!

He’s getting worse, move him on.

Pickford is no way good enough. Does not command his box. Gets beaten too often by shots he should save. And on average 2 kicks a game go straight into touch if not more.

Pickfords nowhere good enough, his errors this season have been from shotstopping which is apparently His best attribute.

What’s your take, Blues? Should Pickford be given another chance or is it time for a replacement? Join the conversation in the comments!
