Tottenham Hotspur are ready to part company with Kieran Trippier this summer, but the North London club will demand £50 million for the England right-back, according to Football Insider.

Spurs have had issues in the position all season, with the former Burnley defender suffering a post World Cup hangover and struggling for form.

Serge Aurier’s time at Tottenham has been blighted by injuries and inconsistency, with the Ivory Coast international currently on the treatment table and unavailable.

Trippier has been found out in a number of high-profile games this season, with Spurs susceptible down his flank at times.

The report suggests that manager Mauricio Pochettino has decided to bolster his right-back options this summer and that Daniel Levy will ask for a sizeable fee to sell the England man.

Trippier was absent for Tottenham’s 1-0 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday afternoon, with centre-half Juan Foyth filling in at right wing-back and putting in an impressive performance.

The Argentine youngster’s ability to close down both Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane suggests that he could be another option on the flank for Spurs moving forward.

Selling Trippier for anywhere near the reported £50 million asking fee would make Tottenham a massive profit on the defender, who signed from Burnley for a fee in the £3.5 million range.

The Spurs right-back currently has three years left on his contract in North London.
