Carlo Ancelotti has told Everton he wants a new first-choice goalkeeper throwing Jordan Pickford’s future at Goodison Park into doubt, reports The Sun.
The Italian is ready to rip through Everton’s squad in the wake of being outplayed by Liverpool’s kids in last weekend’s Merseyside derby.
Everton’s new manager has deemed a number of players, including Gylfi Sigurdsson, surplus to requirements.
Pickford’s position as Everton’s No.1 is also in doubt following a season full of mixed performances.
Ancelotti has made it clear he wants Everton to sign another goalkeeper by the summer at the latest to challenge Pickford for the No.1 jersey.
It leaves Everton in a difficult position after they shelled out up to £30m to prise Pickford away from Sunderland in the summer of 2017.
Despite some alarming displays, only Ederson and Alisson (both 26) have kept more clean sheets than Pickford (19) in the Premier League since the start of last season.
In that time, however, only three players have committed more errors directly leading to an opposition goal in the Premier League than the England international (5).
