Everton are reportedly considering selling Jordan Pickford, with Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United apparently keen.

According to a report from The Sun, Tottenham and West Ham are two of the sides that are set to be interested in Jordan Pickford, with Everton considering selling the goalkeeper and replacing him with Nick Pope this summer.

Pickford has endured a mixed season at Goodison Park having gone into the campaign off the high of England's stunning World Cup run. There have been some questions asked about his form and conduct, with his most notable mistake coming right at the end of the Merseyside derby at Anfield when he managed to set up Divock Origi for the winner.

 

The Sun reports that the Toffees could consider selling Pickford this summer, with Marcel Brands likely to want around £50 million for the former Sunderland man.

Interestingly, the report adds that Everton have identified Burnley stopper Pope as a potential replacement, with the Clarets willing to sell their former number one for just £10 million.

The Sun suggests that Spurs and West Ham would be interested in Pickford if he became available. There has been criticism of Hugo Lloris' form this season, and some Tottenham fans believe that Mauricio Pochettino needs to look at replacing the Frenchman in the near future.

Meanwhile, Lukasz Fabianski has actually been an inspired signing for the Hammers. But it appears that Manuel Pellegrini may feel that the opportunity to land Pickford would be too good to pass up if he is available, especially as it may be a roll of the dice to back the 33-year-old to maintain his current form for several years.
