It’s no secret that West Ham are in the market for a new goalkeeper, after seeing both Joe Hart and Adrian fail to catch the eye last term.

Manuel Pellegrini has arrived at the London Stadium and is likely to focus on landing a new first-choice goalkeeper as one of his first tasks with the Hammers, where a number of names have been linked.

Amongst those touted with a potential move across the Premier League are Burnley’s England international duo Nick Pope and Tom Heaton.

Pope excelled in Heaton’s absence due to injury this season, forcing his way into Gareth Southgate’s World Cup squad and helping the Clarets secure Europa League football, giving Sean Dyche a major decision to make.

West Ham are said to be interested in both stoppers and although it’s more likely that they’ll be able to agree a deal for Heaton, fans on social media have made it clear that Pope is the man they want.
