Chelsea manager Graham Potter is scouting Jordan Pickford at the World Cup as a potential signing for the Blues.
Potter is going to have his first transfer window as Chelsea manager in January and he’s already looking for potential signings which would suit his style of play.
Now the Sun has reported that he is already scouting Jordan Pickford at the World Cup as a potential replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga and Eduard Mendy. Potter is seemingly not sure about either of them. Kepa has only played 40 times since the start of the 2020/2021 season with Mendy being the preferred starter. But it seems like both are on the cards to make way for Pickford.
Chelsea may see a new goalkeeper next summer
The £ 71 million Spaniard has been hailed by Nizaar Kinsella as having “special” goalkeeping skills. Meanwhile, the Everton keeper is valued at just £17m by the CIES football observatory having only 18 months left on his contract. Lampard may allow him to leave if he has no intention of extending the contract.
The 28-years old joined Everton in 2017 from Sunderland for a deal worth £30m. Since the beginning of 2020/2021, he has secured only 20 clean sheets in 84 appearances. Meanwhile, Kepa has secured 19 clean sheets in 40 matches.
Pickford however has showcased himself for England international team and was described as “faultless” by Everton Coach Alan Kelly.
