Chelsea face £50M spend to land Burnley keeper Pope

Chelsea would need to fork out a large fee for Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope.

The 27-year-old has been linked with a move to the Blues, who are looking to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Sean Dyche has stated Burnley are not interested in selling Pope, who would have likely been picked for England's Euro2020 squad.

But should Chelsea push for a transfer, LancsLive says they better bring their cheque book.

The local Burnley publication believes Pope would demand a fee of at least £50m.

Pope has been brilliant at Turf Moor this season and is line for the Premier League Golden Glove award, having kept 11 clean sheets.
