Lloris wasn’t at his best last season as Spurs finished eighth in the Premier League table and missed out on Europe for the first time in 14 seasons. The 36-year-old has scored 45 goals in 31 appearances in all competitions.

according to football transfer, Pickford wants to know who the new Spurs manager will be before Postkoglu takes over, as well as Kane’s future, before making a decision.

Postkoglu replaced interim manager Ryan Mason on a four-year deal, becoming Spurs’ fourth after Mauricio Pochettino, following Mourinho, Santonuno and Conte Permanent manager.

He arrived at Tottenham after winning the domestic treble with Celtic in Scotland last season. His summer plans are already underway as he looks to strengthen his new Tottenham side and goalkeeping is one area he wants to strengthen.

Pickford was one of Everton’s standout players in a dreadful 2022/23 season, and they were all but relegated if they didn’t beat Bournemouth on the final day of the league season.
