Tottenham Hotspur transfer news: Napoli and Manchester United ready to battle to sign Kieran Trippier
Tottenham Hotspur right-back Kieran Trippier is being coveted by both Manchester United and Napoli, according to reports.
The England star’s career in north London is hanging in the balance after a poor season following his World Cup heroics.
Trippier, 28, has been the weak link in Mauricio Pochettino’s side this campaign with an own goal against Chelsea and a missed penalty against Crystal Palace in the FA Cup just two of his worst moments, while injuries have also harmed his form.
This hasn’t deterred his suitors, according to Gianluca Di Marzio, though with Man United keen to add to their ranks at full-back with Antonio Valencia leaving this summer and Diogo Dalot still only 20 years old.
Napoli, meanwhile, may well be protecting themselves should they lose Elseid Hysaj, although they do already have Kevin Malcuit in their ranks to replace him.

Should Trippier leave Spurs it could well increase the likeliness of them moving to sign Crystal Palace starlet Aaron Wan-Bissaka who has excelled at Selhurst Park this season.
Wan-Bissaka was linked with an England call-up earlier this year but missed out on a spot, with Trippier retaining his place despite his poor showings.
