Pickford, a regular in the England Under-21 side, will become the third most expensive goalkeeper in history should the fee reach its full value.
Because of Everton's heavy outlay for the 23-year-old, Pickford's worth has come into question.
“He has played brilliantly,” Seaman said of his countryman.
“We have known with Jack that he has this capability of unlocking defences, he can see passes that other players can’t.
David Seaman has urged England manager Gareth Southgate to trust West Ham goalkeeper Joe Hart despite a run of bad form that has lead to many questioning his position as England no.1.
Just three clean sheets in nine West Ham appearances, as well as conceding 17 goals in that time, has thrown his stronghold on the goalkeeper's jersey into doubt.
The likes of Stoke City's Jack Butland, Everton's Jordan Pickford and Southampton's Fraser Forster have all shown what they are capable of this season with a number of eye-catching performances. However, former Arsenal and England stalwart Seaman told the Daily Mail that Southgate should keep his faith in Hart, because the pressure applied by others will galvanise the Manchester City loanee. For me Joe is still England's number one," Seaman said. "I had the same situation when I was with England I knew the other goalkeepers were getting closer, it just made me try and train a little bit harder and try to play better." David Seaman during his England days.
“It is exciting that we have a cup final to go to but let’s not take our focus off what really needs to be done which is obviously the league and the Europa League,” he told talk SPORT."Joe has massive experience because he’s played at the highest level for a long, long time, whereas with Jordan, he’s not played as much."There are steps – Sunderland to Everton, then even Everton to one of the bigger clubs, like one of the top four clubs, then it’s Champions League, then it’s playing for England, then it’s playing in a World Cup."Obviously he’s still learning, With Sunderland last season he had a lot to do, which was great for him because he was able to show what he can do.But he’s made another step up now and what he’ll find out is that he won’t have as much to do, but he’ll still need to be ready when needed.
