Tottenham could reportedly be keen on a deal for Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, but they should dodge the risk of adding him to their squad.
According to the Sun, Everton are considering selling their shot-stopper in the summer for £50million and replacing him with Burnley’s Nick Pope.
The report details that Spurs and West Ham would be interested in snapping up the 25-year-old if he is to leave Goodison Park.
Pickford has to fame in recent years in the Premier League and also the international stage, with his ability on the ball making him a real modern goalkeeper.
The England number one took his nation to the semi-finals of the World Cup last year and is also a permanent fixture in the Everton team.
But he’s suffered a drop off in the levels of his performances this campaign and had some problems off the pitch too.
Pickford would be a gigantic risk at £50million for anyone and it’s a target that Spurs should chalk off from their list.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side do have problems in goal this campaign following the mixed form of Hugo Lloris, but they have Paulo Gazzniga to step in if needed and captain Lloris is a senior figure.
Spurs have a strong English contingent within their group and Pickford would fit in with that, but for the error prone goalkeeper it’s too risky.
