According to talkSPORT, reported Tottenham Hotspur target Jordan Pickford is set to be sold by Everton this summer.

The Toffees are in a really difficult position at the moment, but not all hope is not lost just yet. Following their impressive victory over Chelsea last weekend, Everton’s fate lies in their own hands.

The Merseysiders have a game in hand over both Burnley and Leeds United, and if they win that, they will leapfrog both teams and climb up to 16th in the league table.

As he was against Chelsea last weekend, Pickford will be the key man in Everton’s next five games, but if the report is to be believed, he may not play again for the Toffees after that.

It is no surprise that Pickford will look to leave Everton at the end of this season if they get relegated.

However, what’s surprising is that the Toffees are reportedly ready to listen to offers for their star goalkeeper even if they stay up in the Premier League.

It has been claimed that Lampard is contemplating cashing in on the England number one this summer in order to raise funds for a big rebuild at Goodison Park.

Spurs want Pickford to succeed Lloris

The Telegraph revealed back in November last year that Tottenham have lined up Pickford as Hugo Lloris’ successor.

The French World Cup winner signed a new contract in January and he’s set to stay at the club until 2024. However, he’s 35 already and it’s clear that he’s not the same player he once was.

If Spurs really want to get back into the top four and become a top team under Antonio Conte, they need to strengthen almost every position, and Pickford would be a great option.

The Englishman has had his shaky moments over the years, but he is still a quality goalkeeper, and his distribution is up there with the best in the country. If Pickford’s available, Spurs should go and sign him this summer.
