Nick Pope Linked With Move to Capital to Join Joe Hart At Tottenham
Burnley and England International goalkeeper Nick Pope is Tottenham Hotspurs first choice to replace Hugo Lloris if he leaves this summer. Spurs captain and goalkeeper Lloris will have a year left on his contract at the end of the season and despite coming in for criticism after recent mistakes he has received emphatic backing from manager Jose Mourinho last week.
Paris Saint-Germain are said to be keen on Lloris and Spurs are aware France’s World Cup winning captain may be interested in a return to his homeland and also a reunion with former manager Mauricio Pochettino who is now in charge at Parc des Princes. England International Nick Pope is valued in the region of £30m and tops Spurs’s list of potential candidates to succeed Lloris.
Nick Pope, joined Burnley from Charlton Athletic in 2016 and has developed into one of the Premier League’s best-performing and most consistent goalkeepers. Having forced his way into the England squad, winning four senior caps. The Clarets goalkeepers contract expires in June 2023, though the Turf Moor club has an option for an additional year.
Meanwhile, Mourinho has vowed to go down in the Spurs history books for good reasons rather than bad. Spurs have lost five of their last six league games, sliding down to ninth and nine points off the top four in the process have been knocked out of the FA Cup in the last month.
