GiveMeSport claimed on December 17 that Antonio Conte’s men could face competition from Manchester United and Chelsea for the England number one.

The Mail have now backed up the interest of Tottenham, Man Utd and Chelsea in Pickford and explained that recent developments have encouraged all three clubs.

It is revealed that the goalkeeper verbally agreed on a five-year deal with Everton last month and a swift resolution was expected before the player travelled to the World Cup.

However, the club are yet to sign off on the contract despite Pickford’s willingness to commit due to delays at the boardroom level. This delay is said to have alerted the aforementioned three clubs, who believe that a deal for the Toffees number one can be pushed through.

If Pickford has agreed to commit his future to Everton, then one would expect the Goodison Park hierarchy to offer him the new deal sooner rather than later. Perhaps, Spurs will be in contact with the goalkeeper’s representatives, trying to convince him against signing a new deal.
