Spurs transfer news: Tottenham looking to seal £22m deal with Napoli for Kieran Trippier
Spurs reached the final after beating Ajax over two legs and face Liverpool at the Wanda Metropolitano on June 1.
The report adds that Spurs have blocked all negotiations until after the final, however, there is optimism from all sides that the deal for Trippier can be completed.
The English defender has struggled this season and the report claims that Napoli are aware of the tough negotiation tactics by Daniel Levy.
Getting £22m for a 28-year-old who hasn’t done well this season isn’t a bad deal, and it will be interesting to see if the deal does take place right after the final.
A big decision awaits Pochettino
The report adds that Mauricio Pochettino has a tough decision to make regarding who plays as the right-back against Liverpool.
Trippier had a tough time against Ajax over the two legs, however, he did well in the second half in our 3-2 win over the Dutch giants.
We could play Serge Aurier as the Ivorian has just returned from an injury. Kyle Walker-Peters is the other right-back in the side, but it would be a major surprise if the English youngster starts.
