Ange Postecoglou has been named as the new Tottenham Hotspur head coach, succeeding Antonio Conte. 

It was confirmed on Tuesday that the Australian had left his role with Celtic to join Spurs, just days after guiding the Hoops to a Scottish Cup triumph over Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

Postecoglou succeeds Conte, who had been sacked in March and then replaced with interim boss Christian Stellini.

Stellini himself was then sacked and replaced by Ryan Mason, but the former Spurs midfielder will now hand over the reins to the Australian.

Spurs are set to be busy during the summer transfer window, although most of the speculation surrounding the club so far has been in relation to striker Harry Kane and a potential exit from the club.

The England captain has been heavily linked with a move away from north London, but it now appears that the Lilywhites could be looking to sign one of his international teammates.

As per Football Insider, Tottenham remain interested in Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and will be hoping to sign him as a replacement for Hugo Lloris, who looks set to leave the club.

Pickford recently signed a new long-term contract with Everton

The Frenchman is believed to be open to the idea of leaving Spurs this summer as he approaches his 37th birthday, and Spurs have reportedly identified Pickford as one of a number of candidates to replace him.

Pickford, 29, has been both the Toffees’ and England’s first choice ‘keeper for several seasons now, having joined his current club from Sunderland back in 2017.

In total he has made 237 appearances for Everton, including 38 across all competitions this term as he helped save the club from top flight relegation.

In February, the Englishman signed new long-term contract set to keep him at Goodison Park until 2027, but it appears that the extension hasn’t deterred Spurs.

Despite that, Spurs are said to be plotting a move for the Englishman, although they are also said to be interested in Brentford’s David Raya and Dinamo Zagreb’s Dominik Livakovic.
