West Ham are weighing up a potential move for Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope, according to reports in the English media.

The Hammers do have the option of signing Alphonse Areola on a permanent basis from Paris Saint-Germain for £10m, but Pope could be available for below that price if Burnley are relegated.

Supporters on Twitter have been debating whether the Englishman, who has eight caps at senior level, would be a better option than either Areola or West Brom’s Sam Johnstone:

It will be interesting to see which direction manager David Moyes goes. Areola has impressed when playing in the Europa League but his wage demands (£120,000 a week) would put him among the highest-paid at the club.

Johnstone is available on a free transfer, but he is also being pursued by Manchester United and Tottenham so Pope could well be a sensible alternative. Whether the 30-year-old would actually be available for below £10m, though, it remains to be seen.
