Tottenham Hotspur are seemingly eyeing yet another Everton player as news emerges on Three Lions number one and Toffees shot stopper Jordan Pickford.
The Lowdown: Talks ongoing…
As per recent reports, Spurs are currently in talks over a move for Richarlison, with winger Anthony Gordon also mentioned as part of a potential package.
The Lilywhites are continuing their summer rebuild ahead of manager Antonio Conte’s first full Premier League season in charge of the club and have already confirmed three major signings.
Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster and Yves Bissouma have all arrived at Hotspur Way before 2022/2023 with an update now coming to light on who club chiefs could be eyeing next.
The Latest: Spurs now hold Pickford discussions
As per a report by 90min and journalist Sean Walsh, it appears Everton keeper Pickford is also on the radar of Spurs officials.
Indeed, the 28-year-old has apparently been ‘discussed’ in recent transfer talks between the Merseyside club and Conte’s side with Tottenham apparently asking over his availability.
However, the report goes on to state that he may not be a target for this current window.
The Verdict: Move in future?
A crucial player under Frank Lampard during the latter stage of 21/22, Pickford is one of the main reasons Everton managed to avoid the drop.
Who does Conte need to sign after Bissouma?
A world class centre-back
As per WhoScored, the former Sunderland star won their joint-most Man of the Match awards alongside Richarlison (3) and played more league minutes in total than any of his teammates.
He’s also turned heads at international level with England, as explained by former Man City star Trevor Sinclair, who lavished him as ‘one of the best goalkeepers in the world’ (talkSPORT).
Lampard also branded Pickford ‘world class‘ in May after a brilliant performance against Chelsea at club level, leaving little surprise Spurs are keeping tabs.
As Hugo Lloris enters the twilight phase of his career, perhaps Everton’s mainstay could be a brilliant future replacement.
