Tottenham: Spurs eyeing Nick Pope -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Nick Pope is among Tottenham Hotspur’s potential January transfer targets, according to The Daily Mail

The lowdown

Spurs’ current number one Hugo Lloris is out of contract at the end of the 2021/22 season, although according to Fabrizio Romano, the Lilywhites are currently in talks with the 35-year-old over a one-year extension.

Pope may be viewed as a contingency plan, or perhaps as a successor to Lloris from 2023. The 29-year-old Burnley stopper is valued at £13.5m by Transfermarkt and has 18 months remaining on his own deal.

Spurs signed Pierluigi Gollini on loan with an option to buy back in July, but he hasn’t even started every cup game.

The latest

As part of their club-by-club guide to the transfer window, The Daily Mail have listed the players that Spurs ‘like’.

Pope features on that list, along with Wolves’ Adama Traore, Juventus’ Dejan Kulusevski and Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic.

The outlet claimed that Conte apparently wants a goalkeeper this month in addition to a right wing-back, a winger and a striker.

The verdict

Is Pope good enough for Spurs? In truth, he’s not having the greatest of seasons for the struggling Clarets. If you go by post-shot expected goals, he has conceded 2.6 more than he should have, and that’s one of the poorest records in the Premier League.

On the other hand, he did play three times for England last year and may well have been part of the Euro 2020 squad were it not for injury.

He has also been dubbed ‘sensational’ by the Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and has been a near-constant in Burnley’s team for several seasons now, so he may have what it takes to ultimately succeed Lloris as Spurs’ number one.

In other news, could this remarkable transfer happen for Spurs?
