West Ham identify England international with 95 domestic clean sheets as ideal first-team replacement

West Ham has reportedly identified Burnley’s Nick Pope as the ideal replacement for backup shot-stopper Alphonse Areola.

That’s according to a recent report from the Daily Mail, who claim the Hammers are ‘monitoring’ the England international ahead of a potential summer deal.


Pope, 30, has just a year left on his current deal at Turf Moor and failure to remain in the Premier League, will almost certainly see the Clarets forced to bid farewell to their long-serving number one.
