The Toffees are said to be willing to listen to offers for England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, regardless of relegation, to fund Frank Lampard's rebuild in the Summer.

Bazunu kept 16 clean sheets in 44 appearances in League One last season as Bazunu claimed Pompey's club player-of-the-year award.

The 20-year-old will either go out on loan at a higher level next season or leave the Etihad for another Premier League or European club on a permanent basis.

It's suggested that Man City would explore the option of including a buy-back clause if Bazunu was to depart the club this summer.
