The Sun has claimed that Burnley are willing to sell rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target Nick Pope this summer but only if they receive a significant offer for the goalkeeper.

It has been suggested that this could be Hugo Lloris’ final season at Tottenham, with the goalkeeper, who has 12 months left on his contract, being linked with a return to Ligue 1.

Pope is one of a number names reportedly on Tottenham’s radar as a potential replacement for Lloris, while the likes of Manchester United’s Dean Henderson, West Brom’s Sam Johnstone (Daily Mail) and Lille’s Mike Maignan are also said to be on Spurs’ shortlist.

The Sun claim that Burnley are preparing themselves for the potential sale of Pope this summer and have identified Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale as a replacement.

However, the Clarets are reported to be looking for a fee in the region of £45million to sell the England international.

Spurs Web Opinion 

I cannot see us spending £45million on a goalkeeper this summer, particularly with Lloris not showing too many signs of decline and plenty of other areas of the squad also requiring investment. 

I also doubt if we would go for Pope if we appoint a progressive manager as the 29-year-old is poor with the ball at his feet. If we are to enter a marker for a goalkeeper this summer, I believe we would probably look to complete a cut-price deal for Sam Johnstone if the Baggies are relegated.
