Report: Everton interested in £10million-rated Nick Pope to replace Jordan Pickford

Everton reportedly have Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope on their radar ahead of the summer.

According to the Sun, the Toffees are interested in the 26-year-old and that comes as a result of the club considering selling Jordan Pickford at the end of the season.

It is understood that Burnley would want around £10million to prize Pope away from Turf Moor.

Pope has been frozen out of the picture at Burnley due to a shoulder injury at a bad time, but he showed great form last season and helped them qualify for the Europa League.

TBR’s View

 

Pope would be a potential £10million steal for Everton in the summer and certainly worth pursuing for Marco Silva.

But the Merseyside club should be looking to bring the Burnley ace in as competition for Pickford and not to replace him.

Pope could definitely step into the shoes as number two with Everton and then compete with Pickford for the number one position, but it would be too risky to offload their current star and bank on the Burnley goalkeeper to succeed him.

Everton do need to make a few amendments going into next season if they want to improve on a likely mid-table finish and the goalkeeper department should not be a priority in the transfer market.
