Everton fans react as £8m Jordan Pickford offer is rejected

According to reports in the Liverpool Echo, Everton are reportedly keen to sign Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford this summer and have already lodged an £8m bid, but it was laughed off by the Black Cats.

Ronald Koeman is looking for a new number one with both Maarten Stekelenburg and Joel Robles failing to impress, but he faces a tough task to get Pickford unless the Toffees are willing to significantly raise their initial offer.

The Mackems – who were relegated to the Championship this season following a disastrous campaign – are demanding £30m for the 23-year-old, who will be in the thinking of England manager Gareth Southgate following a number of fine performances throughout the campaign.

Everton supporters were quick to have their say on the news via social media, with some saying that Pickford isn’t worth anything near £30m, while others want the club to show ambition rather than offering small bids for transfer targets.
