Napoli 'in pole' for Trippier

Napoli are reportedly in pole position to sign Tottenham Hotspur defender Kieran Trippier.

Atletico Madrid were thought to have leapfrogged Napoli in the pursuit of Trippier, but the Independent writes the Partenopei remain ‘confident’ of a £25m (€28m) deal.

That would also corroborate a claim made by Radio Kiss Kiss – the southerners’ official radio stadion – that a transfer was ‘very close’.

The newspaper adds the Englishman is ‘keen’ on the idea of moving abroad, despite his role as Spurs’ first-choice right-back.
