Tottenham transfer news: Spurs keen on Jordan Pickford as Everton make summer decision | Football | Sport


Tottenham are keen on signing Everton and England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, according to reports. Everton are considering cashing in on the 28-year-old even if they avoid relegation from the Premier League.

Spurs captain Hugo Lloris only signed a new two-and-a-half-year contract at the club in January to keep him in north London until 2024. But interest in Pickford must raise doubts over the future of the France star.

Pickford put in a man of the match display as Everton picked up a crucial 1-0 win over Chelsea last Sunday. But despite that performance, talkSPORT claims Toffees boss Frank Lampard is contemplating selling the former Sunderland ace to raise funds for his summer rebuild.

Tottenham and Newcastle are both tracking Pickford’s situation. However, the goalkeeper’s affiliation to Sunderland makes a move to St James’ Park difficult.

Meanwhile, Newcastle have been linked with a host of goalkeepers since their Saudi Arabian-backed takeover. Manchester United’s Dean Henderson and Arsenal’s Bernd Leno have both been reported targets.

Pickford was born in Sunderland and spent 15 years at the club from the age of eight. Despite that rivalry, former England midfielder Danny Murphy believes the Magpies would be a good destination for the goalkeeper.

When asked which team Pickford could join if Everton were relegated this summer, Murphy told talkSPORT: “Newcastle. Straight away, there’s one.”
