According to The Sun, the re-emergence of Paulo Gazzaniga at Tottenham Hotspur means that Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope is no longer needed at the North London outfit.

Back in October 2018, The Mirror reported that Pope was on the radar of North London outfit Tottenham.

It was reported that Spurs wanted to secure the services of the 26-year-old England international goalkeeper in the summer of 2019.

The Sun, though, has now claimed that Gazzaniga’s re-emergence means that the 26-year-old goalkeeper is no longer a target for Tottenham.

The 27-year-old joined Tottenham from Southampton in the summer of 2017, and the Argentina international has made two appearances in the Premier League and one in the Champions League so far this season, according to WhoScored.

According to The Sun, Burnley are ready to sell Pope in the summer transfer window, with the report also claiming that Arsenal could now make a move for the Englishman.

Pope has made one Europa League and has played twice in the FA Cup for Burnley so far this season, according to WhoScored.
