According to a report by Il Bianconero, Tottenham Hotspur want €30million (£26.7m) for Kieran Trippier amid interest from Juventus and that has got a number of the fans on Twitter talking.
The England international has had a poor season and admitted as much himself when he acknowledged that he deserved to be snubbed from the squad for the Nations League Finals (Sky Sports).
It was truly disappointing to see the right-back struggle as he had looked excellent in the World Cup during the summer and promised to have a huge impact with our efforts throughout the campaign.
Despite WhoScored suggesting Trippier had actually improved over on last year’s performances with their statistical data, there were many that were not generally pleased with what they saw from the 28-year-old.
However, it seems Spurs are ready to offload him as he failed to live up to those expectations and Juventus are thought to be keen on him, although it is believed the defender would like to stay in England (Sky Sports).
Sky Sports have claimed we are interested in replacing him (and Serge Aurier) with Olympique de Marseille’s Hiroki Sakai, but whether a move for the 29-year-old actually takes place is something we will have to keep an eye on over the transfer window.
Indeed, with the news that Spurs want £26.6m for Trippier, a number of the fans took to Twitter to share their delight if they were able to receive that amount for him.
One fan mentioned that Daniel Levy would have ‘pulled off his biggest ‘Levy’ ever’ whilst others quite simply prayed it would happen. Here are some of their reactions…
If he pulls that off, it’s Levy’s biggest “Levy” ever
