North London giants Arsenal are reportedly eyeing a summer transfer for Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope.

The Sun claim that the Gunners want to sign the Premier League (PL) shot stopper in a deal worth £10m.

England national team goalkeeper Pope was the first choice shot stopper at Lancashire outfit Burnley before his long-term injury layoff.

The 26-year-old has been relegated to third choice behind Tom Heaton and summer signing Joe Hart.

Tom Heaton has been in very good form for Burnley since he was reinstated into the team at the expense of Joe Hart by manager Sean Dyche.

He has been very impressive for a Burnley side that’s yet to taste defeat in the league since the turn of the year.

Nick Pope would find it hard to displace Tom Heaton who has been very impressive for the Clarets.

Pope could be the direct replacement for legendary Premier League goalkeeper Petr Cech who has announced his retirement from football.

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has revealed that he will hang his gloves at the end of the current campaign.

The retired Czech Republic international shot stopper joined the Gunners in 2015 from London rivals Chelsea and has won two FA Cup titles since he became an Arsenal player.
