It has been reported by the British tabloid that Chelsea are looking at Everton goalkeeper Pickford and Stoke City custodian Jack Butland should Thibaut Courtois leave for Spanish and European giants Real Madrid this summer.
Pickford - who joined Everton from Sunderland in the summer of 2017 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £25 million - would cost around £60m, according to The Sun.
The British tabloid has also claimed that Pickford may be tempted to move to a bigger club than Everton this summer.
Good signing for Chelsea?
Courtois is a world-class goalkeeper and is one of the best in the world, but Pickford would be a suitable long-term replacement.
The 24-year-old played well for England at the 2018 World Cup in Russia this summer, and his progress over the past two or so years have been superb.
Although Pickford could reportedly cost £60m, he would be worth the investment for Chelsea.
