Everton are ready to listen to offers for Jordan Pickford this summer with Tottenham among those monitoring the goalkeeper’s situation, according to talkSPORT. 

The Toffees have endured a dire campaign this season and are battling to preserve their Premier League status, with the club currently sitting in the relegation zone with five games remaining. 

Frank Lampard’s side earned a crucial three points in their bid for survival with a 1-0 win over Chelsea last Sunday, with Pickford starring in a gruelling encounter at Goodison Park. 

The England international made a flurry of excellent saves to preserve Everton’s slender lead, but his future in Merseyside could be in doubt even if he helps his side to remain in the top tier. 

TalkSPORT report that Everton could cash in on the stopper this summer to fund a squad rebuild, while Pickford himself could push for a move if the club is relegated to keep his place as the Three Lions’ No 1 option for this year’s World Cup. 

The report adds that Tottenham are keeping tabs on developments regarding the 28-year-old, while Newcastle are also interested despite the goalkeeper’s previous ties to arch-rivals Sunderland. 

Current Spurs stopper Hugo Lloris signed a new two-year contract extension back in February, while backup option Pierluigi Gollini is expected to return to Italy at the conclusion of his loan this summer (CalcioMercato via Fichajes).

Spurs Web Opinion 

Pickford has been good at points for Everton in what has been a pretty dreadful campaign for the club. He would definitely be a decent option to bring in, but it is likely that he would want to be playing every week which wouldn’t be a guarantee with Lloris at the club.
