Roma goalkeeper Pau Lopez has recently drawn interest from the Premier League with the involved parties Chelsea, West Ham, and former club Tottenham.

Following an impressive season at Real Betis, Spanish international Lopez only transferred to Serie A club last summer for £22.8 m (€23.5 m)

However, the 25-year-old is reportedly out injured with a broken wrist and three Premier League clubs are keeping an eye on the situation of Lopez after a disappointing first season in the Italian capital, according to the Spanish outlet Estadio Deportivo as stated by Football Italia.

The report reports that Roma will part around £36 m (€40 m) with their goalkeeper.

Lopez, who won two caps at the international level, played on loan from Espanyol for Spurs in the 2016-17 season.

He failed to make a single competitive appearance at the north London club, however, with Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm in the pecking order ahead of the Spaniard.

But Spurs is said to be considering giving Lopez a fresh chance to back up Lloris, while Chelsea sees him as a possible rivalry with current keepers Kepa Arrizabalaga and Willy Caballero.

West Ham is the team where Lopez would most likely be playing regularly, fighting with Lukasz Fabianski for the No 1 spot.

Last season, Lopez missed only five league games playing in La Liga for Real Betis, as Quique Setien – now Barcelona’s manager – led the side to the tenth in the table. Lopez made 34 appearances in all competitions this season but he only kept nine clean sheets
