The subject of who might be between the sticks for Chelsea, in the forthcoming 2018 / 2019 Premier League season, continues to generate column inches.
Yesterday, speculation emerged, and as covered by Vital Chelsea, Click Here, that the club might be contemplating making a move for the out-of-favour Manchester City keeper, Joe Hart.
The suggestion wasn’t exactly well received by the Vital Chelsea fraternity with perhaps the only positive aspect of a possible deal would be that Hart would qualify as a home-grown player.
However, today there is a slightly different scenario developing and, in our opinion, a slightly more positive one.
According to the news source, the Daily Mail, if Chelsea do lose Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid, they could be looking toward securing the services of Jordan Pickford.
As we all know, Pickford enhanced his reputation tremendously at the recent World Cup and you feel that trying to prise the keeper away from Everton would be a huge ask and could involve a large fee.
However, there is the suggestion doing the rounds, on the social media networks, that perhaps Chelsea could orchestrate a deal if it meant offering Chelsea a couple of our players;
Aren’t we asking about 2 Chelsea players. We may end up with a swop deal. Not that I think we should.

Could it happen?
But, regardless of the above, in my opinion, out of all the names suggested so far this transfer window when it comes to goalkeepers, that of Pickford would, at the moment, get my vote.
