Bournemouth ready to bid for Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope

Bournemouth are ready to bid for Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope.

The Daily Mail says Bournemouth are ready to follow up their capture of defender Lloyd Kelly with a move for £15m Burnley goalkeeper Pope.

Eddie Howe kick-started what is set to be a busy summer of business for Bournemouth by sealing a £13m deal for England under-21 starlet Kelly from Bristol City, the first major transfer of this window.

Offering out-of-favour Asmir Begovic back to his former club Stoke as a makeweight was considered in a bid to try and bring the cost of a deal for Butland down.

But Pope, 27, is likely to be the slightly cheaper of the two and Bournemouth are now set to firm up their interest with an opening offer.
