Report: Tottenham agree £21.7million fee for Kieran Trippier sale

Tottenham defender Kieran Trippier is reportedly close to joining Atletico Madrid.

According to Sky Sports, Atletico have agreed a £21.7million deal to sign the England international this summer.

It is understood that the 28-year-old will have a medical on Wednesday and he should join the La Liga outfit by the weekend.

The report details that Spurs were offered forward Angel Correa as part of a swap deal, but in the end Atletico have opted for just a cash move.

Trippier was signed by Mauricio Pochettino back in 2015 from Burnley and has been a regular during his time with Spurs.

 

The right-back has featured 114 times for the North London club and played in last season’s Champions League final defeat to Liverpool.

TBR’s View:

Trippier has had some excellent moments in a Spurs shirt, with 24 assists in 114 games highlighting his attacking qualities.

He’s a set-piece specialist that peaked during the 2018 World Cup with England, but unfortunately wasn’t able to back that up last season and saw his form drop off slightly.

He can look a little lightweight defensively and will have to sharpen up if he’s going to make a serious impact at his reported new club Atletico.

Trippier’s exit shouldn’t be too much of a blow to Spurs, who have Serge Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters available to scrap over the right-back position.
