Tottenham fans react to Jordan Pickford wage reports
A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to react to reports claiming that Everton are now keen to sell Jordan Pickford, with Spurs willing to meet his wage demands.
Tottenham have received a big boost ahead of next summer. It has been reported that there is quiet confidence that Hugo Lloris will sign a new contract and stay next season.
However, Antonio Conte will still have to think about who succeeds the Frenchman when he does step aside. And it appears that one player on their radar is Pickford.
Tottenham have been linked with the 27-year-old for a little while. And it now seems that Everton would welcome Spurs making a move. The Sun reported over the weekend that the Toffees are ready to sell the Englishman to raise funds ahead of the January transfer window.
Their asking price is said to be around £30 million. And interestingly, the report suggests that Tottenham are prepared to meet his £100,000-a-week wage demands.
Unfortunately for the Spurs hierarchy, the move would seemingly not go down well with a lot of supporters. Perhaps it should not be a surprise with Pickford a divisive character.

He has been outstanding for England. But maintaining that form for Everton has proved difficult. And with that, plenty of Tottenham fans would rather see the money spent elsewhere with Lloris keeping his place for the next 18 months.
With that in mind, here is what some of the Spurs supporters make of the latest reports concerning Pickford…
Not too happy with this one tbh

This may end as a super class signing or as one of the worst signings we’ve ever done
