Burnley (opens in new tab) goalkeeper Nick Pope is Tottenham (opens in new tab)’s top target to replace Hugo Lloris if the Frenchman leaves this summer, say reports.

The Spurs captain enters the final year of his contract at the end of the season and the Premier League club could look to cash in.

According to the Daily Mail (opens in new tab), PSG (opens in new tab) are interested in bringing Lloris back to his home country and the goalkeeper is tempted by a reunion with former boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Tottenham have drawn up a list of potential replacements should the World Cup winner depart, and England international Pope is the top name.

Pope will command a transfer fee of around £30m, but Spurs face competition from Premier League rivals West Ham (opens in new tab) for his signature.

The 28-year-old has a contract at Turf Moor until 2023 and the Clarets are unlikely to let one of their key performers go without a fight.

The former Charlton stopper has conceded 25 goals in 24 Premier League games this season, keeping nine clean sheets.

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
