#4 Juventus prepare £30m bid for Trippier
The Sunday Times reports that Juventus are preparing a £30m bid for Tottenham right-back Kieran Trippier, who they see as the perfect replacement for Joao Cancelo. We had earlier revealed that a right-back was a high priority in the list of reinforcements for Juventus this summer, because Joao Cancelo, their Portuguese right back, was on his way to Manchester City.
Trippier did not have the best of seasons with Spurs this year but was still a vital member of the team that reached the final of the UEFA Champions League final. He was Pochettino's first choice right back throughout the season and was especially effective in the semifinals against Ajax. Juventus seem to have seen enough to believe that Trippier has the qualities to succeed at Turin.
It is believed that Napoli are also interested in the services of the Englishman, however, Juventus could be his more preferred option. Now that Sarri has been appointed as the new manager, one can expect things to speed up pretty fast.
