Tottenham boss Conte interested in Everton goalkeeper Pickford

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte is interested in Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

The Telegraph says Conte wants a new goalkeeper that can either replace Hugo Lloris or compete for the No 1 jersey with him next term.

Pickford is among the high-profile candidates in the frame for Conte, who wants a homegrown option.

The 27-year-old has two-and-a-half years remaining on his current Everton deal but the Toffees will not allow the England No 1 to leave cheaply and would expect a substantial profit on the £25million they paid Sunderland in 2017.

Everton though could be tempted to sell with manager Rafa Benitez admitting financial fair play rules were 'killing his side' back in the summer, and Pickford's departure would enable the Toffees freedom to spend in strengthening other areas of the squad.
