Jordan Pickford, who is a transfer target for Tottenham Hotspur, has reportedly been a “leader” for Everton during their preseason workouts, according to Frank Lampard, who spoke to Toffee TV. Because of what the 28-year-old accomplishes for his team on the field, the Everton manager said that the player is a “God-send” to him. That was demonstrated during the 2021–2022 Premier League season, when Pickford turned in some spectacular performances as the Toffees narrowly avoided relegation.

With Everton’s most recent preseason game ending in a 2-0 loss to Arsenal, Lampard discussed the strengths Pickford possesses and the leadership abilities that are developing in his game. We are all aware of his previous season, particularly the final stretch, remarked Lampard. “Having a goalkeeper of that caliber playing the way he does is a godsend for me because it’s essential to the outcome. Wilshere’s assessment of the English player connected to Tottenham is “Better” Tottenham has inquired about hiring an Everton player making £110,000 per week. “I have experienced the opposite of it, where you sometimes feel like you are defending effectively but you don’t have the presence in goal,” the speaker said. “He’s maturing all the time and it’s totally merited (that he wore the captain’s armband during pre-season),” the coach said of Jordan, who is also a leader within the group today. picture from Getty Images by CLIVE BRUNSKILL/POOL/AFP TOTTENHAM’S TRANSFER RADAR HAS PICKFORD ON IT Hugo Lloris, the primary goalkeeper for Tottenham and a World Cup champion, is France’s top goalkeeper, but he will turn 36 later this year. Given that Fraser Forster, a summer signing for Spurs, is a year younger than Lloris, the club will need to find a long-term goalkeeper as soon as possible. However, it appears that the Champions League team is thinking strategically and has identified Pickford as a potential future transfer target. Richarlison, one of Everton’s key players, was already sold to the north London team due to the club’s financial difficulties. If and when Tottenham come knocking for Pickford, those on Merseyside will be hoping they are in a better position, especially their financial state to turn down any advances, which they couldn’t do with Richarlison this summer. A star that Liverpool paid £45 million for and is now playing for a “third elite club,” according to Ian Wright, is “fantastic.” Do you have a comment about this article? Inform us.
