According to a report by The Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur have identified Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope as the man to replace Hugo Lloris should the Frenchman leave the club in the summer.

Lloris has come in for a lot of criticism for some of the mistakes he has made recently and there have been calls from pundits for the 34-year-old to be dropped.

However, Jose Mourinho has defended the Tottenham goalkeeper, insisting that he is still a top player.

The Daily Mail reveal that despite Lloris’ downturn in form, the experienced Spurs star is still an attractive option for Paris Saint-Germain.

The report claims that the 34-year-old would be interested in a return to France and could be tempted by a reunion with Mauricio Pochettino in Paris.

Considering the Tottenham captain will be down to the final year of his contract at the end of the season, it is said that the North Londoners have their eyes on a potential summer move for Pope.

Pope has proven over the last few years that he is one of the safest pairs of hands in the Premier League. While he does not often pull off spectacular saves that Hugo is capable of, the 28-year-old hardly makes any mistakes and transmits confidence to the backline.

However, I still believe that Lloris has a few years left in him at the top level and I think some of the criticism that has come his way over the last few weeks has been harsh. I would be pleased if the Frenchman were to sign a contract extension with Spurs at the end of the season.
