According to a report from LancsLive, Tottenham Hotspur will have to pay £50m to snap up Nick Pope from Burnley in the summer transfer window.

Pope has been one of the most consistent goalkeepers in the Premier League over the past couple of seasons.

The 28-year-old is reportedly one of the names on Tottenham’s radar as a potential replacement for Hugo Lloris in the summer.

Although Jose Mourinho has said that he still retains faith in Lloris despite his recent mistakes, reports indicate that the Frenchman could be tempted by a reunion with Mauricio Pochettino at Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.

However, Tottenham’s pursuit of Pope looks anything but straight forward, with LancsLive now claiming that the Clarets are in no mood to entertain any offers for their number one.

Pope is contracted to the club until 2023 and Sean Dyche’s Burnley have the option to extend that deal by a further year.

It is asserted that Burnley will not consider selling the England international for a fee less than £50m.

Spurs Web Opinion

If Tottenham are to buy a suitable number one to replace Lloris (whether it is Pope or Dean Henderson), it will likely cost the club somewhere in the region of £35m-£50m.

I just cannot see us spending that kind of money on a goalkeeper at a time when there are other areas of the pitch that need to be addressed. That is why I expect Spurs to do everything in their power to get Lloris signed to a new deal.
