Tottenham Hotspur: Lilywhites could sign Jordan Pickford -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

According to Claret & Hugh, Tottenham Hotspur could now try to sign Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford as transfer chief Fabio Paratici eyes a new target between the sticks.

The Lowdown: Lilywhites set sights on shot stopper?

Antonio Conte mainstay and long-serving Spurs star Hugo Lloris, who recently put pen to paper on a contract extension, will eventually have to be replaced.

The Frenchman is well into his career twilight phase and Tottenham won’t be able to rely on him indefinitely, prompting recent links to goalkeeping transfer targets.

Paratici and co are very unlikely to keep loanee and current number two Pierluigi Gollini with the Italian seeming set to return to parent club Atalanta.

Can you tell us where all these ex-Spurs stars are from? Federico Fazio...

West Bromwich Albion ace Sam Johnstone, who will leave the Hawthorns as a free agent this summer, has been heavily linked with a move to north London recently, but C&H now have news on a homegrown alternative option.

The Latest: Pickford on the radar…

According to their information, Tottenham could try to sign Toffees shot stopper Pickford as they ‘look for a long-term’ Lloris replacement.

This comes as the England international ‘bids to remain in the Premier League’ ahead of this year’s World Cup finals in Qatar.

His club are currently in the midst of a relegation battle with Frank Lampard’s side seemingly in real danger, prompting both Conte’s side and West Ham to keep tabs on Pickford’s situation ahead of the summer.

The Verdict: Great option?

Homegrown, still only 28-years-old and a proven star at international level under Gareth Southgate – Pickford emerges as a really good option for Tottenham.

The Goodison Park ace attracted huge praise for his performances in a Three Lions jersey during last summer’s Euro 2020 Championships with pundit Trevor Sinclair even calling Pickford ‘one of the best goalkeepers in the world’ (talkSPORT).

It’s clear the former Sunderland star enjoyed a phenomenal tournament as one of Southgate’s best players and Pickford’s ability is arguably there for all to see.

Recent reports suggest that Everton could even green-light the goalkeeper’s sale for around £30 million, though with Johnstone available for nothing, it remains to be seen whether Paratici opts to invest significantly on competition for Lloris.

One certainty, however, is that Pickford would certainly come as a stellar option.
