>With the strange acquisition of 38 year old, Robert Green, and rumours echoing around whether World Cup Golden Gloves winner Thibaut Courtois will stay at the Bridge, it has been reported that Chelsea have made England number 1 Jordan Pickford their primary transfer target.
Both Courtois and Pickford are on holiday after having great world cups. Courtois looks set to leave and has reportedly already made travel plans to Spain following his potential move to Real Madrid. The European champions have been monitoring the Belgian for a couple of seasons and it seems they have finally got their man.
Kasper Schmeichel and Jack Butland are among the possible replacements at Stamford Bridge, but Pickford ranks above both of them on Chelsea’s wanted list. Everton are unlikely to let Pickford go without a fight so watch this space for a bidding war.
