Italian Serie A giants Juventus are the favourites to sign Tottenham Hotspur defender Kieran Trippier according to the latest reports from the British media.

North London giants Tottenham Hotspur are open to the idea of selling Kieran Trippier this summer and several clubs are interested in him.

Apart from Juventus, the 28-year-old has also been linked with fellow Italian Serie A giants Napoli and Premier League club Manchester United.

The specific report from The Telegraph revealed that Juventus are in pole position to sign him though it must be pointed out that his North London club will ask for £25m for his transfer.

Kieran Trippier is seen as a direct replacement for Portuguese international player Joao Cancelo who’s expected to leave Juventus for Premier League champions Manchester City in the coming days.

Manchester City have already agreed on a €50m deal to sign Joao Cancelo as the Citizens try to get better competition for first choice right-back Kyle Walker at the Etihad Stadium.

Kieran Trippier was made to pay for an average season after he was left out of the squad for the UEFA Nations League finals by England manager Gareth Southgate.

Without him, the Three Lions of England finished the competition in third place behind winners Portugal and runners-up Netherlands.
