Everton have agreed a £30m deal with Sunderland to sign goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
The goalkeeper had a wonderful season at Sunderland, but was unable to prevent his clubs relegation from the Premier League.
Everton are one of a number of clubs interested in signing the English stopper, and are believed to have made a paltry £8m offer last month which was rejected.
After rumours over his potential signing went quiet, numerous reports now claim that Sunderland have accepted an improved £30m offer from The Toffees.
The transfer fee will see Pickford become the most expensive British goalkeeper in history, and the third most expensive goalkeeper ever, behind Juventus legend Gianluigi Buffon and Man City new signing Ederson.
Pickford is currently on duty with England’s U21 team, and upon his return, he will finalise terms and have his medical before the transfer is completed.
Everton have been linked with moves for Sandro Ramirez, Davy Klaasen and Paul Pogba’s brother, Florentin Pogba in the last few days as they look strengthen their squad ahead of the new season.
