Loads of Chelsea fans are losing it over speculation that the club could make a move for Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope in the summer.
According to Bleacher Report journalist Dean Jones, the west London club will consider selling current No.1 Kepa and have identified Pope as a potential replacement. That has not gone down too well on Chelsea Twitter, despite how poor Kepa has been this season.
It was only earlier this week when Sky Sports highlighted the Spaniard’s struggles in the current campaign. According to them, Kepa had a save percentage of just over 50% going into the Arsenal game. That is the lowest percentage out of every Premier League shot-stopper who has played more than 1000 minutes this term.
Other stats including goals prevented also make for grim reading, so it is no surprise that Chelsea could be ready to dump the world’s most expensive goalkeeper.
For these Chelsea supporters, however, his replacement should not be Pope…
