Transfer news: Tottenham join Chelsea in pursuit of in-form 27-year-old PL star

Tottenham Hotspur join Chelsea in pursuit of goalkeeper Nick Pope

According to a report by The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur have joined London rivals Chelsea in the race to sign Nick Pope from Burnley.

The 27-year-old has emerged as a top target for numerous Premier League sides this season, with his promising displays between the sticks for the Clarets.

Incidentally, both Tottenham and Chelsea need to find replacements for Hugo Lloris and Kepa Arrizabalaga respectively. While Lloris has reached the twilight stage of his career, Kepa hasn’t been in good form and even put up some error-strewn performances, much to the chagrin of manager Frank Lampard.

Meanwhile, Lloris, 33, not only suffered from a horrific elbow injury earlier this season but has also failed to impress in the net.

As a result, Mourinho has identified Pope as a possible replacement for the Frenchman (h/t The Sun), who has served us well for a good number of years.

To make matters worse, Paulo Gazzaniga, who acts as Lloris’ deputy, hasn’t done much to warrant a place in the starting XI. In fact, between them, they have managed to maintain merely 4 clean sheets throughout the term so far.

Pope, on the other hand, has been one of Burnley’s standout players over the last couple of years or so. Since Sean Dyche’s team managed to secure promotion to the Premier League, the Englishman has been one of their shining lights – despite all the inconsistency.

Signing a talented keeper like Pope would be a major relief as far as our goalkeeping crisis is concerned. Thus, Mourinho should attempt to beat his former club to bag his signature.
