Tottenham Hotspur right-back Kieran Trippier has struggled to maintain his form this season after a stellar World Cup for England in Russia.
The full-back has admitted that his performances have not been good enough this year, and he is glad to see the back of the campaign on a personal note (Sky Sports).
As a result of his poor form, Trippier has consistently been linked with a move away this summer, with Italy being the most reported destination.
Napoli are apparently keen on bringing the England international on board (Sky Sports), however, one of the club’s rivals may be about to throw a spanner in the works.
Sky Sports Italy now report that Juventus are also interested in signing Trippier this summer, with the Spurs right-back said to be the preferred replacement for Cancelo if he is to depart.
Trippier is under contract until 2022, and has made it clear that he wants to remain in the Premier League.
He said (Metro): “I want to stay in England, but what can you do?’ Tripper said after the Champions League final defeat to Liverpool. ‘I’ll see what happens, and what the club wants, most importantly.
“I give everything for this club in training sessions, games. I don’t know [if I will be at Spurs next season]. I’ll go home now, spend time with my family and just recover after a long, difficult season
“Everybody’s got a decision to make. Obviously, this club has been very good for me over the last few years, but I’ll enjoy my summer, come back in pre-season and that’s when I’ll sit down with the manager and have a talk about my future. I see a lot of speculation about me not being here.”
