Blues boss Frank Lampard is said to be hoping to welcome a new first-choice goalkeeper through the doors at Stamford Bridge this summer and Mills believes Pope fits the bill.
Since joining Burnley from Charlton Athletic in 2016, Pope has established himself as one of the most reliable goalkeepers in the Premier League and made two appearances for England.
