Chelsea FC will make a move to try and sign Jordan Pickford from Everton this summer if Thibaut Courtois ends up leaving Stamford Bridge, according to reports in the British media.

Sky Sports is reporting that the Blues have made Pickford their top priority in the summer transfer window should Courtois’ time at Chelsea FC come to an end.

Courtois’ future at Chelsea FC has been a constant source of speculation this summer as the goalkeeper’s contract is set to expire at the end of next season and he is yet to sign a new deal.

The Belgian shot-stopper has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer and Chelsea FC have now picked a possible replacement should he indeed leave Stamford Bridge.

However, the same story says that Everton are likely to resist any approach for Pickford as they look to keep hold of the goalkeeper, who shone for England at this summer’s World Cup in Russia.

Chelsea FC are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they bid to try and build a team capable of winning the title under Maurizio Sarri next season.
