Tottenham preparing bid for Jordan Pickford with England stopper having hidden clause
Tottenham ‘have made Jordan Pickford their No 1 goalkeeping target’ to replace Hugo Lloris despite the England shot-stopper signing a new deal… and the Toffees ‘will let him leave for £35m if the club are relegated’

Tottenham are reportedly interested in signing Everton No 1 Jordan Pickford despite the goalkeeper signing a new four and a half year deal.
The north London club are finally looking to change their goalkeeper with 36-year-old Hugo Lloris well past his peak.
And Pickford remains their first choice despite the Englishman penning a new deal.
The report from The Sun claims that if Everton are relegated they will allow him to be sold.
Pickford’s price would be lower as a Championship player but the Toffees would still want around £35million — although that could be haggled down.

The 29-year-old put pen to paper on a new deal last month in what was seen as a boost for new manager Sean Dyche.
However, the reality is that he will be sold if Everton do get sent down and Spurs are willing to match the wages.
The Toffees secured an enormous result on Saturday when they beat Brentford 1-0 at home.
It moved them up to 15th, two points above the drop.
