Landing a new goalkeeper is one of Eddie Howe’s summer priorities and at present he has been closely assessing England stoppers Nick Pope and Stoke’s Jack Butland. Offering out of favour Asmir Begovic back to his former club Stoke City was considered in a bid to try to bring the cost of a deal for Jack Butland down.

However, Pope is likely to be the slightly cheaper of the two and Bournemouth are now set to firm up their interest with an opening offer of £15 Million. The Clarets keeper had an excellent season for Burnley during 2017/18 season earning him a place in the England World Cup squad.
