Despite a relegation season for Sunderland Jordan Pickford was one of the bright sparks in what was a poor season for the club, the 23 year old was the clubs number 1 and despite the clubs position many critics were quick to comment on the young mans potential.
His performances throughout the campaign caught the eye of premier league clubs who are set to fight for his signature this summer, Arsenal are looking to bring the England shot stopper in to give competition to Cech, as well as the toffees who appear to be unimpressed with Maarten Stekelenburg this season.
The question would be what’s the best for Pickford’s development and England career, although arsenal will certainly offer him a lucrative deal but would that come at a price of not playing first team football?
With Pickford staying at Sunderland first team football is certain, but will not being around top quality players hinder his development?
Is certainly an interesting summer for Pickford, but with only one season of potential with him only 4 clean sheets his high price tag is set based mainly on potential.
