Chelsea are reportedly considering a move for Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope amid concerns about the form of current number one Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Chelsea are reportedly interested in Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope amid the side's growing concerns about the form of current number one Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Pope has impressed with Burnley since securing the first choice position in 2017 following an injury to Tom Heaton.

According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea have not been impressed with Kepa since his £72m arrival from Athletic Bilbao and are considering a move for the two-time England stopper.

The report adds that the Blues want a keeper that can provide the Spaniard with competition as he continues to under-perform.

Pope has warded off competition from both Heaton and Joe Hart during his time at Burnley and has been a regular in the past few England squads.

The 27-year-old is under contract at the Turf Moor club until 2023, with an option for a further year.
