According to a recent report by the Sun, Everton are plotting a £20m offer for Tottenham Hotspur full-back Kieran Trippier in the summer. The same source has also revealed that Spurs are prepared to offload both their right-backs, Trippier and Serge Aurier at the end of this campaign which could pave the way for the Toffees to land the English defender during the summer transfer period.
Marco Silva currently has both Seamus Coleman and Jonjoe Kenny competing for a right-back place in his first-team at Goodison Park. However, one could argue that neither of them has managed to impress with their performances on the pitch this season. Hence, Trippier could be an ideal solution to their right-back problems as he is an excellent outlet down the right flank.
The England international has put in a series of match-winning displays for Spurs during this season. He has featured in 29 matches for the North London outfit this term, scoring one goal and creating four assists across all competitions.
More importantly, the former Manchester City youth product has made an average of 2.3 tackles, 0.9 interceptions and 2.2 clearances per game in the Premier League thus far (Stats taken from Whoscored).
Trippier is blessed with decent pace and is a very useful dribbler with the ball. His delivery from set-pieces is of the highest quality while he can also score goals from dead-ball situations as evidenced by his breath-taking freekick against Croatia in last summer’s 2018 FIFA World Cup.
The potential acquisition of Trippier will undoubtedly bolster Silva’s defensive options at Goodison Park. He will be a significant upgrade over both Coleman and Kenny both defensively and in the opposition half. Trippier has all the skill set to be a success under Silva’s tutelage at Merseyside so Everton should do everything in their power to land him in the summer.
The Bury-born defensive ace has also secured 16 international caps for the England national team and played an instrumental part in helping his nation reach the 2018 FIFA World Cup semi-finals where they were eventually knocked out by Croatia. It could prove to be a clever coup for Silva if he can somehow manage to lure the English talent away from North London ahead of the new campaign.
