Chelsea will scout Jordan Pickford at the World Cup as part of their ongoing search for a new goalkeeper..
The Everton goalkeeper has performed admirably for England at both the 2018 World Cup and Euro 2020, playing an important role for Gareth Southgate’s team.
He has been in talks with Goodison Park about a new contract, but has yet to sign anything.
His current contract expires in 2024, and while both the Toffees and Pickford are eager to extend it, an offer from elsewhere may tempt the 28-year-old..
It would remove a significant wage from the club’s books and potentially allow Pickford to compete at the top of the Premier League and in Europe..
According to The Sun, Chelsea’s new owners are still unconvinced by both Kepa Arrizabalaga and Edouard Mendy.
Graham Potter prefers Kepa to Mendy, but the Blues are also interested in his former Brighton keeper Robert Sanchez.
Under Potter, the Spaniard established himself as one of the league’s best young keepers and is on Chelsea’s radar.
They are aware, however, that it may take a large fee to entice the 25-year-old away from the South Coast, which is why they are considering alternatives..
