West Ham and Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, according to The Sun.
Pickford’s form has dipped recently and his antics off the pitch have Everton concerned. After a brawl in a nightclub, Pickford faces disciplinary action from Everton.
And the Toffees could sell him with London-based Premier League duo West Ham and Tottenham ready to swoop.
Everton’s goalkeeper plan
Everton are willing to sell Pickford with Marco Silva’s patience wearing thin. The Merseyside club value the England international at £50m.
This would give them money towards a summer of spending and they plan to use £10m of that to land Burnley’s Nick Pope.
Pickford and Pope compete for the England goalkeeper spot but Burnley favour Tom Heaton at the moment so Everton could swoop.
Selling Pickford for £50m would see Everton make a £20m profit and signing Pope for £10m would be a cheap replacement between the sticks.
Where would Jordan Pickford fit in at West Ham?
On this season’s form, Lukasz Fabianski has outperformed Pickford between the posts.
The Poland international has arguably been West Ham’s best player this season. But he turns 34 this month and West Ham could see Pickford as his long-term replacement.
However, Pickford is unlikely to settle for a back-up role at West Ham. The 25-year-old might instead fancy a move to Spurs to take the place of out-of-form Hugo Lloris.
