Pope Emerges As Spurs Target

Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope has reportedly emerged as a target for Premier League rivals Tottenham. Pope has enjoyed a meteoric climb to the top over the last 12 months and his performances have caught the eye of Spurs.

He only earned his Premier League debut in September 2017, replacing the injured Tom Heaton, and he spent the majority of the campaign between the sticks as Burnley went on to secure Europa League football.

The 26-year-old was also rewarded with a place in England’s 23-man World Cup squad, although he failed to make an appearance in Russia.

Reports claim that Spurs are big admirers of Pope and believe he could be a long-term successor to Hugo Lloris in north London.

Tottenham are also assessing the future of number two Michel Vorm, who will be out of contract at the end of the term, and it’s understood they could move for Pope in January.

The Clarets could be open to doing a deal due to their wealth of options in his position following the arrival of Joe Hart to bolster the ranks over the summer.
