Tottenham Hotspur: Jordan Pickford move talked up

Tottenham Hotspur: Jordan Pickford move talked up -Premier League News

Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing a move for Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, according to club expert John Wenham.

The Lowdown: Tottenham target Pickford

The 28-year-old has emerged as a transfer target for Antonio Conte to replace long-term servant Hugo Lloris, who is nearly 36 and approaching the twilight of his career.

Journalist Dean Jones informed GIVEMESPORT of Spurs’ interest in Pickford, and a fresh claim has come to light which seems to signify that a move could well be in the offing…

The Latest: Wenham’s comments

Speaking to Football Insider, Wenham was full of praise for the England shot-stopper, while also claiming that the player himself would likely be keen on a potential move to Tottenham.

The Spurs expert said of Pickford, whose contract at Everton expires in 18 months’ time: “Tottenham will absolutely be looking at that. I think he is a very, very good goalkeeper. He is a bit unusual, personality-wise, I wonder if that is the reason he has stayed at Everton.

“He would be an asset to have at the back behind that defence. If Tottenham decide that Lloris is done and he can go, maybe next summer, then I don’t think you can go wrong with Pickford.

“I’m sure Pickford, at some point, will look to move to a club playing in the Champions League, he doesn’t want to be in a relegation battle. He should be at a big club, fighting for trophies rather than losing 7-1 to Bournemouth on aggregate across two games in the same week.”

The Verdict: Get it done

Despite England’s heartbreaking exit from the World Cup at the hands of France, their first-choice goalkeeper enjoyed yet another decent tournament, keeping three clean sheets in five outings.

Also lauded as ‘sensational‘ for his performances at club level by journalist Jeff Wallner, the 28-year-old has been a shining light in a poor Everton team this season, deemed their third-best performer in the Premier League by SofaScore with an average match rating of 7.24.

Lloris has been a fantastic servant to Tottenham, lining out 437 times for the club over the past decade, but Pickford would appear to be the perfect heir to the Frenchman, and Conte should pursue a move for the Everton stopper at the earliest opportunity.
