In a recent report, Fichajes revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing a move for Everton keeper Jordan Pickford. It has been stated that Spurs are hoping to bring the English goalie to North London next year.
Pickford’s Difficult Season At Merseyside So Far
Pickford has made a tough start to this Premier League campaign as he has struggled to help the Toffees find consistency thus far. The English custodian has made six appearances for the Merseyside club this season, conceding ten goals in all competitions.
The 29-year-old has done well to average 1.0 clearances and 5.0 long balls per game in the Premier League. However, he has been a bit inaccurate with his ball distribution based on his pass success rate of 73.8% in the top tier of English football (stats via whoscored).
His current contract at Goodison Park will run out in the summer of 2027. Thus, Spurs would have to make a convincing offer if they want to get Pickford on board in the future.
Should Tottenham Hotspur Boss Angelos Postecoglu Move In For Pickford?
Pickford can be a safe pair of hands in between the sticks when he is playing with confidence on the pitch. He is a solid handler of the ball and has got decent reflexes that help him make a few important saves at the back. Pickford also doesn’t hesitate to come out of his penalty box to clear the danger when needed.
However, the English talent needs to improve his passing accuracy if he wants to be a success story at a club like Tottenham. Pickford has what it takes to offer some serious competition for Guglielmo Vicario at the North London club next year.
The English talent would also serve as an ideal replacement for Hugo Lloris who has entered the final stage of his playing career at the London club. All in all, Spurs would be wise to move in for Pickford but only if they can land him on a fair deal in 2024.
At 29, Pickford is playing in his prime at the moment and has got a wealth of experience in Premier League football. Hence, he would be a good signing for Angelos Postecoglu as he might help the London club challenge across all fronts in the coming seasons.
