According to a recent report by the Independent, Napoli are in the driver’s seat to bring in Tottenham Hotspur right-back Kieran Trippier to the Serie A during the summer transfer window. The same source has revealed that Spurs would be willing to part ways with the English defender if they receive an offer of around £25m for him in this offseason.
Tripper’s Impressive World Cup Campaign Followed By An Underwhelming Premier League Season
Trippier has struggled to find consistency with his performances for the North London outfit this season despite having a brilliant 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign with Gareth Southgate’s England in Russia. He announced himself to the world by converting a magnificent free-kick against Croatia in the semi-finals of the competition. However, unfortunately for Trippier, his goal was not enough to give his nation the victory on that night as Croatia ended up knocking them out after extra-time.
The English full-back has experienced a mediocre campaign with Spurs thus far, but his fortunes could still change for the better if he can help his team win the UEFA Champions League final against Liverpool on June 1st.
The 28-year-old has featured in 37 matches for Mauricio Pochettino’s side this term, registering one goal while providing five assists in all competitions. More importantly, Trippier has made an average of 2.5 tackles, 1.1 interceptions and 1.9 clearances per game for Spurs thus far (Stats taken from Whoscored). The Bury-born full-back has also earned 16 international caps for England and has one goal to his name for his country.
What Does The English Defensive Ace Add To Pochettino’s Team?
Trippier has decent pace in his locker which enables him to dribble with the ball at high speed down the right wing. He can also whip in some inviting crosses into the opposition box and is a significant goal-threat from direct freekicks. However, he has struggled to find consistency which has not helped his cause at the new White Hart Lane.
The departure of Trippier will undoubtedly decrease the quality of the Tottenham squad, but Pochettino also has Serge Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters to rely upon to fill in at the right-back position at Spurs next season.
Should Pochettino Let Trippier Leave This Summer?
Unless Trippier can put in a man of the match performance in the Champions League final, there is no reason why Tottenham should keep him at the club for the long-run. His inconsistent form and lack of defensive awareness have cost Spurs quite a few results during the recently concluded Premier League season.
