Arsenal In Transfer Tussle With London Rivals For £10m Rated Cech Replacement

Arsenal and Tottenham have both been alerted to the availability of Nick Pope with Burnley ready to sell the 26-year-old, according to the Sun.

The Gunners are seeking a replacement for the retiring Petr Cech while Spurs could also make a move for the England international.

Pope was Burnley’s number one before a dislocated shoulder derailed his career. Tom Heaton is now the Clarets’ first choice with Joe Hart next in line.

The goalkeeper has not even made the bench for any Premier League game this season and has started just two FA Cup games back in January.

Arsenal will be keeping Bernd Leno as their first choice keeper after some top displays this season, but they may look to recruit Pope as the German’s understudy.

Despite his lack of games, Burnley are expected to demand £10m for the shot-stopper in the summer; a figure which is unlikely to be met by interested clubs.

The Gunners are likely to offer players as part of any deal for Pope as they work within a limited transfer budget.
