Tottenham willing to part ways with Trippier
Tottenham have reportedly slapped a rather large price tag on their main right-back, Kieran Trippier.
According to the Express, Spurs would be willing to part ways with Trippier for a fee of around £40m.

Trippier joined Tottenham in 2015 from Burnley for a fee less than £5m and had proved to be somewhat of a bargain.
The 28-year-old was particularly impressive for England at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Unfortunately for Spurs fans, Trippier’s form didn’t carry over into the 2018/19 campaign.
The full-back has had several poor displays this season and is often criticised by Spurs fans.
As a result, they would probably bite your hand off to get £40m for him.
The main club Trippier has been linked with recently is Manchester United.
This isn’t too surprising as United will be short a right-back come the summer.
Antonio Valencia’s deal runs out in July and United chose earlier this year not to renew it.
Ashley Young can also play right-back but he too is getting on in years and his recent displays have been pretty poor.
This would leave Diogo Dalot as United’s main right-back next season. While Dalot is a solid player he is only 19 years of age.
