Kieran Trippier is expected to leave Tottenham after being put up for sale this summer, but offloading the 28-year-old is proving a difficult task. Trippier has a £25m asking price but no sides appear willing to match it, which could be a big problem for Mauricio Pochettino.

The Tottenham manager is trying to sign Ryan Sessegnon, but Spurs are unwilling to pay more than £25m for his signature. Offloading some deadwood will help pay for the Fulham midfielder, but Trippier doesn’t have any genuine interest from clubs.

Everton were linked with a move for the England international, but the Toffees already have Seamus Coleman at right-back and don’t need another. Crystal Palace have also been mentioned as potential suitors after selling Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United, but Trippier may not want to join a Premier League side who flirt with relegation.

If Pochettino manages to cash in on the 28-year-old, he’ll be left with Serge Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters to choose from at right-back – both of whom spent most of 2018/19 on the periphery. Tottenham are struggling to sell Trippier, however, which could mean the status quo remains for another season.

  • No outgoings at all- either nobody wants our players or nobody can afford them at Levy prices, not sure Spurs can afford to keep bringing in players and not selling them as it swells our squad size and wage bill when we are supposed to be paying off our new stadium. Sad times…
