According to the report by the Daily Mail, should Lloris leave north London this summer – with the Tottenham captain rumoured to be a target of Mauricio Pochettino’s Paris Saint-Germain – Spurs will line up a £30 million move for Pope, who is also thought to have ‘admirers’ at West Ham United.
So far this season, the £10.8 million-rated 28-year-old has highly impressed over his 24 Premier League appearances for Sean Dyche’s side, keeping nine clean sheets, as well as making an average of 3.8 saves and 0.8 successful run-outs per match, culminating in an average SofaScore match rating of 7.16.
And, after The Spurs Express relayed the report regarding Pope on Twitter, fans of Tottenham flocked to have their say on the matter, with many appearing delighted at the prospect of their club making a move for the England international this summer.
Would Pope be your ideal Lloris replacement?
So, what exactly did these Tottenham Hotspur fans have to say in reaction to Spurs’ reported interest in Nick Pope?
“Three players who would instantly improve our squad, all PL and achievable: Pope, Lamptey, Ward-Prowse. Add Skipp and Sess coming back from loan too.”
“Please Levy get him, desperate for homegrown players and to put one in our starting XI would be great. For £30m (or so) it’s a no brainer.”
“THE DUBS KEEP ON COMING AHHH.”
“Perfect replacement. Been thinking this for a while.”
“Worth every penny.”
“Make it happen please.”
“So much better than Henderson, get him.”
“Would be a great signing. Would love this to be true.”
“GET IT DONE.”
All in all, it would appear as if these Spurs fans would be all for their club making a move for Pope this summer, and, considering how imperious the shot-stopper has been for relegation-threatened Burnley this season, it is not difficult to see why.
