Tottenham Hotspur and Everton are reportedly keen on signing English goalkeeping sensation Charlie Setford from Ajax.

According to a report from Daily Mail, Tottenham and Everton are looking to sign 18-year-old Ajax goalkeeper Charlie Setford in the upcoming windows.

The talented young goalkeeper will be a free agent at the end of the season, and he will be able to discuss at pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs next month. Setford is highly rated in European football, and he has the potential to develop into a quality goalkeeper in the future.

It is no secret that Tottenham need to sign a goalkeeper, especially with Hugo Lloris in his twilight years. However, the 18-year-old Ajax shot-stopper might not be ready to replace the French international just yet. Nonetheless, he would be a solid long-term addition to Tottenham and could develop into a key player for them in the future.

Meanwhile, Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has been linked with a move away from Goodison Park in recent months. And the Toffees will have to bring in a quality replacement if the England international decides to move on.

Setford would be a quality long-term acquisition for the Toffees, and he is likely to be an inexpensive addition as well. Both Premier League clubs could look to sign the English goalkeeping sensation for a nominal price next month or they could agree on a pre-contract deal with the player and sign him on a free transfer in the summer.

It will be interesting to see how the situation develops over the next few weeks. The opportunity to move to the Premier League could be an attractive proposition for Setford, and he will fancy his chances of doing well at Tottenham or Everton in the long run.

Given the fact that the 18-year-old English goalkeeping sensation could be signed on a free transfer at the end of the season, the move should be a no-brainer. It would be a move with a huge potential upside. If Setford manages to fulfil his potential and develop into a quality keeper, the transfer would look like a masterstroke.
