Chelsea are ramping up their quest to nab Nick Pope from Burnley ahead of Frank Lampard’s second season in charge of the club.
But the Blues target isn’t likely to be cheap with Clarets boss Sean Dyche reportedly slapping a £50million tag on his prized asset.
Pope, who made 38 Premier League appearances for the Clarets this season, is the Blues number one target according to the Daily Star.
And the Burnley stopper, who was rumoured to be a transfer target for Tottenham last year, is reportedly keen on a move to one of the giants in England’s top division.
The 28-year-old, who kept 15 clean sheets in the league this term, was narrowly beaten by Manchester City goalie Ederson to this season’s Golden Glove prize.
It’s believed a move to one of the Premier League’s top sides could help the Clarets star rival Jordan Pickford as first choice for Gareth Southgate
