Champions League finalists Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing a move for Napoli defender Elseid Hysaj this summer.

According to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Spurs want to sign the Albanian international right-back during this summer’s transfer window.

It was revealed that Hysaj is on a two-man shortlist of transfer targets as Tottenham Hotspur try to sign a replacement for Kieran Trippier who left the club this summer.

Chelsea target Hysaj is on the right-back shortlist alongside AS Roma defender Alessandro Florenzi.

Spurs are in the market for a new right-back after Kieran Trippier joined Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid earlier on Thursday.

The England international star was unveiled as an Atletico Madrid player alongside Spanish centre back Mario Hermoso.

The 28-year-old was the first choice right-back at Spurs until this summer.

He was part of the Tottenham Hotspur team that lost the Champions League last month.

Kieran Trippier and Spurs were beaten 2-0 by Liverpool courtesy goals from Mohamed Salah (penalty) and second half substitute Divock Origi.

The former Burnley defender will replace veteran right-back Juanfran at Atletico Madrid after the Spaniard left the club at the end of his contract last month.

Juanfran left the Spanish outfit alongside former club skipper Diego Godin.
