Chelsea made an eye-catchy contract in 2018 as they splashed a record £71million payment to sign atletico Madrid’s Kepa Arrizabalaga. The 25-year-old has not explained his price tag, though, and the Blues are trying to substitute him.
Kepa was far from compelling this season so it’s possible that Chelsea would find him expendable. True Madrid reportedly has an interest in recruiting him.
In case Kepa moves on, the Blues are expected to turn their attention of Pickford who is believed to be valued at £43.5million.
The 26-year-old Everton star has come under strong criticism this season for his performances with many pundits even questioning whether he should retain the England number spot.
However, Pickford remains Everton’s one of the best players, having kept 34 clean sheets in 120 Toffees appearances.
Carlo Ancelotti is a big admirer of Pickford and therefore could be reluctant to sell him. However, a lucrative offer on the table could change their stance.
Pickford is an excellent shot-stopper and is very good with the ball at his feet. But the former Sunderland goalkeeper has this bad habit of making errors but with a good defence ahead of him, he can prove to be a very good addition.
