Tottenham Hotspur are said to be plotting a summer move for Burnley shot stopper Nick Pope. The North Londoners might need a new goalkeeper in between the sticks with current first choice Hugo Lloris set to depart the club in the summer if recent reports are to be believed. The Spurs shot stopper has been heavily criticised for his performances in the league this season.
His shaky form in the Tottenham Hotspur goal has coincided with the poor run of form for the club. Tottenham Hotspur started the season strongly and were at the top of the table until the last three months when the team began to unravel under manager Jose Mourinho. Tottenham Hotspur are down to ninth spot on the league table and are in serious danger of missing out on European football next season via the league route. They might still make European football next season via the cup route.
The Daily Mail confirmed the interest of Tottenham Hotspur in Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope but it was revealed that the club might need to spend as much as £30m to prise the Three Lions of England goalkeeper away from Turf Moor. Nick Pope has been a consistent performer for Burnley since joining from London club Charlton Athletic. Pope has been at Burnley since 2016 and he has not looked back since becoming the first choice with the Clarets following the transfer of former first choice Tom Heaton to Aston Villa at the start of last season. Nick Pope still has over two years left on his contract at Burnley and that would prompt the club to ask for a big fee to sanction his transfer to Tottenham Hotspur. The North Londoners have also been linked with a move for Manchester United shot stopper Dean Henderson though German club Borussia Dortmund are also interested in signing him.
