Nottingham Forest are now in contention with West Ham United for Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope, sources say The sun.
The Daily Mail reported in April that David Moyes’ West Ham were interested in signing Pope from Burnley in the summer transfer window.
The Hammers reportedly look to the keeper as a possible replacement for Alphonse Areola if his loan from Paris Saint-Germain is not made permanent.
The sun are now reporting that Nottingham Forest, who will play in the Premier League after being promoted from the Championship, have joined the race for the £59,000-a-week England goalkeeper (SalarySport) at Burnley.
According to the report, Fulham are also interested in the Pope.
Forest are reportedly ready to bid low but Burnley want £40m for Pope.
Nottingham Forest and West Ham United won’t pay £40m for Nick Pope
In our view, Nottingham Forest and West Ham United won’t pay £40m for Nick Pope.
Burnley have been relegated from the Premier League and Forest and West Ham certainly won’t want to pay £40m for a player to take part in the Championship next season.
However, Pope would be a good signing for Forest or West Ham.
At 30, the Englishman is at the height of his skills and has enormous experience.
Pope made 141 appearances in his Premier League career to date, keeping 46 clean sheets.
