Jordan Pickford is one of the goalkeepers ‘appreciated’ by Tottenham Hotspur, according to Fabrizio Romano, with the club continuing their search for a new goalkeeper.
Pundit Adrian Clarke outlined earlier this season that Tottenham are likely to replace Lloris at the end of the season, and the Frenchman’s recent performances will have done him no favours.
In the North London derby, the 36-year-old made what talkSPORT’s Darren Bent described as a ‘horrific’ mistake which allowed Arsenal to take the lead, another costly blunder in a poor season, making more errors leading to goals than any other Premier League player.
Romano has now provided an update on Spurs’ pursuit of a new goalkeeper, with the transfer guru telling GIVEMESPORT:
“Tottenham have to decide what their plans are with Lloris because he is not super young.
“This is why they are exploring options around Europe and Pickford is one of many goalkeepers appreciated.”
TIF thoughts on Pickford to Tottenham…
Pickford is unproven at the highest level of club football, having not appeared in any continental competition, however his displays with England are indicative of his ability to perform on the biggest stage, keeping the most clean sheets of any player at Euro 2020.
Not only that, but the 28-year-old is really starting to develop in terms of his maturity, being hailed as a ‘real leader’ by journalist Nick Emms, who also claims that he has ‘world class distribution’.
The Englishman has been a shining light in a very poor Everton team this season, ranked as the third-best performing player in the squad, so he has earned the opportunity to prove himself at a club competing for the European places, and in all likelihood he would flourish.
