Newspaper reports today claim that Liverpool Football Club is amongst a host of clubs interested in signing Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
The highly-rated 23-year-old looks set to leave Sunderland over the coming months with his club having dropped down to The Championship and Anfield could be a possible destination if you choose to believe the latest suggestions.
Arsenal, Everton, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and West Ham are all interested in the England Under 21 international who is expected to go to the World Cup with Gareth Southgate’s senior squad next year.

Reds’ boss Jürgen Klopp is a fan of the player, as too are those around him, but the manager stated recently that he had no plans to sign a goalkeeper, even though it is still widely accepted that he is unhappy with what he has. Priority will be with other positions unless the manager can raise some additional transfer funds from player sales.
We think Pickford would be a great signing for the Reds as he could provide at least a decade’s service to us. Loris Karius doesn’t fill us with confidence but many will feel it’s too soon to completely write him off. Simon Mignolet has upped his game but we’re still not convinced by him either.
