Why is Tottenham still making Jordan Pickford their number one target?
Son Heung-min’s team, Tottenham, has made Everton’s number 1 goalkeeper Pickford their number one target in the summer transfer market. I recently signed an extension contract with Everton, what is Tottenham’s intention?
Tottenham are preparing to part ways with captain and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. His contract expires next summer, and Lloris has worried everyone with his drastic drop this season.

The names of several goalkeepers went up and down. Pickford, who is also a regular for England, has been one of his strongest cards. He has kept England goal in three recent major competitions. However, as Pickford extended the deal with Everton until 2027, Tottenham’s wind seemed to be gone.
But Tottenham did not give up. British media ‘The Sun’ reported that Tottenham still want Pickford. The media notes that Everton and Pickford have agreed to a clause that allows them to leave the team freely if the team is relegated to the Championship. Everton are 15th in the league with 25 points. It’s not yet in the relegation zone, but given that Southampton at the bottom has 22 points, it could fall into the relegation zone at any time.
Even if Everton are relegated, Tottenham will likely have to pay £35m to bring Pickford.
Pickford has made 226 appearances and kept 60 clean sheets since joining Everton from Sunderland in 2017. If Tottenham fail to sign Pickford, the media claimed that they will turn their eyes to Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.
