Chelsea have reportedly stepped up interest in Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope as the Blues eye a potential replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga.
This is according to a report on the Daily Star.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is reportedly keen on replacing Kepa this summer following his struggles in goal for the Blues.
Conceding goals have been a real problem for Chelsea this season, with the Blues having the worst defensive record in the top ten and Kepa has been regularly singled out for criticism and scrutiny.
Pope has emerged as a top target for the Blues given his impressive season this year, with the Burnley goalkeeper having the most clean sheets in the Premier League this season.
Chelsea have reportedly made background checks on the shot-stopper, and are planning to launch a bid for him at some point in the coming weeks.
