Tottenham Hotspur supporters have been reacting on Twitter after a report emerged linking the club with a move for Nick Pope. 

The 28-year-old has impressed this season, keeping nine clean sheets in 29 Premier League appearances for a struggling Burnley side.

Pope’s encouraging displays saw him start all three of England’s recent qualification fixtures and have seen him linked with a move away from Turf Moor.

According to the Daily Mail, one of the sides reportedly interested in the 6’5 shot-stopper is Tottenham, who have identified the Athletic man as their first-choice replacement for Hugo Lloris if he departs this summer.

Current number one Lloris is rumoured to be interested in a return to his native France, leaving the door open for Pope in north London. However, he doesn’t appear to be a popular choice amongst the supporters.

Pope still has two-and-a-half years to run on his contract at Burnley, and with a market value of £13.5m (as per Transfermarkt), it could be an expensive deal to pull off for Tottenham.
