Chelsea linked with £50m Nick Pope as Kepa replacement

Chelsea wants Nick Pope, Spurs face Premier League disruption, Declan Rice makes a Chelsea hint, and Eduardo Camavinga will wait for Real Madrid.

Nick Pope of Burnley is wanted by Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, according to the Star. The 28-year-old England international has three years left on his current deal with Burnley, and as such would cost around £50 million if he were to be prised from the club. Chelsea is ready to pay up because they have lost patience with Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Kepa was dropped from the FA Cup final line-up for the game at Wembley on Saturday, and one would think that he has little chance of making his way back into the side next season. Pope has Premier League and international experience, but at 28 there is probably little improvement to come from a player who doesn’t promise anything spectacular.
