Chelsea 7/4 to sign Nick Pope this summer

Blues No. 1 Kepa could be replaced after falling out of favour
After a below-par campaign between the sticks for Chelsea number one Kepa Arrizabalaga, Frank Lampard could be looking to replace him with Nick Pope, according to our traders.
The 28-year-old goalkeeper, currently first choice at Burnley, has impressed for the past few seasons for the Clarets, and is the 7/4 favourite to sign for Chelsea this summer.
Pope narrowly missed out on the 2019/20 Premier League Golden Glove to Manchester City’s Ederson on the final game of the season.
He’s not the only name on Lampard’s reported list though, with Manchester United’s Dean Henderson, previously on-loan at Sheffield United, the 5/2 second favourite.
Elsewhere, you can find 3/1 on Ajax’s Andre Onana, while Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak is 4/1 to join the Premier League club, despite a reported release clause in excess of £100m.
Coral’s John Hill said: “It looks like Chelsea are looking to replace Kepa this summer, with Burnley’s Nick Pope the favourite in out betting to line up for the Blues between the sticks next season.”
7/4 Nick Pope, 5/2 Dean Henderson, 3/1 Andre Onana, 4/1 Jan Oblak
