Everton are closing in on a deal to sign Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford for £30million, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Pickford is in high demand after impressing for relegated Sunderland in the Premier League this past season.

The 23-year-old was one of ten English players not in Gareth Southgate’s current squad that we said need a move away this summer.

John Percy of the Telegraph states that ‘negotiations have progressed’ between Everton and Sunderland in recent days, with the Toffees ‘increasingly confident’ of striking a deal.

The fee involved ‘could eventually reach £30m after various add-ons and clauses’, and will advance further when Pickford returns from international duty with England’s Under-21s after the European Championships in July.

Percy also claims that the Toffees are ‘pressing forward’ with a deal to sign Ajax midfielder Davy Klaassen.

Countryman Ronald Koeman has identified Klaassen as a leading target, and the 24-year-old would cost around £26m.

Everton are also interested in Malaga striker Sandro Ramirez. Busy boys.
