According to Sport, Everton are looking at Jasper Cillessen as a possible replacement for Manchester United target Jordan Pickford.

It has been reported by the Spanish publication that David de Gea is on his way to Paris Saint-Germain, and the Spain international goalkeeper’s current club United are looking at Pickford as a possible replacement.

 

To replace the England international, the Toffees are looking at Barcelona custodian Cillessen, according to the report.

Sport has also claimed of interest in the 30-year-old goalkeeper from Everton’s Premier League rivals West Ham United.

Good signing for Everton?

Cillessen has been on the books of Barcelona since 2016, but the Netherlands international has been able to make only a handful of appearances for the Spanish and European giants.

The former Ajax star, though, is a very good goalkeeper, and he would not be a bad signing for Everton at the right price.

The loss of Pickford, though, will be a blow, and if Everton do lose him, then they could be seen as a ‘selling club’.
