According to the source, Tottenham and Newcastle are keeping an eye on the former Sunderland man’s status as the summer transfer window approaches.
Toffees manager Frank Lampard praised Pickford as “one of the world’s finest” and stated he “doesn’t receive the accolades he deserves,” according to the Daily Mail (8 May).
If Everton must sell this summer, Whelan believes they should seek elsewhere in their roster.
“Look at his Everton performances – they’ve been outstanding,” he told Ewan Kingsbury of Football Insider.
“With these incredible saves, he’s nearly single-handedly kept the team afloat in the previous two games.”
“However, when big players are needed, they show up in huge games — and Jordan is doing just that.”
“He’s faced a lot of criticism and skepticism because of his involvement with England, but I believe he’s now put that to rest.”
“Everton must make a decision.” There is no question that they will have to sell certain players.
“However, they must prioritize.” Pickford’s replacement will be extremely difficult. International goalkeepers are extremely difficult to come by.
“If they continue in the Premier League, they should definitely try to keep him.”
Everton are now 16th in the Premier League, one point above the relegation zone.
In 32 league appearances this season, Pickford has six clean sheets.
