Bayern Munich keen on Tottenham’s Kieran Trippier – Sky

As per a report from Sky Sports, Tottenham Hotspur defender Kieran Trippier is attracting the interest of Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

Tottenham making moves

On the back of their Champions League final heartbreak at the beginning of last month, Spurs finally began adding long-overdue reinforcements to Mauricio Pochettino’s squad last week.

After almost 18 months without a single arrival at the club, the capital outfit secured a pair of signings last Tuesday.

First, highly-regarded young winger Jack Clarke made the move to north London from Leeds United (though he has since returned to Elland Road on loan).

More significantly, though, in a real statement of intent, Tottenham clinched the addition of in-demand Lyon midfield powerhouse Tanguy Ndombele, for a club-record fee which could eventually rise to almost £63 million:

Daniel Levy and co., though, are thought to be far from finished in terms of recruitment.

Midfielders Giovani Lo Celso and Dani Ceballos are both reported to be inching towards north London, while highly-regarded Spanish U21 international Dani Olmo is also a prime target.

Trippier to Bayern?

As such, there are no doubt also set to be a rake of departures from Mauricio Pochettino’s squad over the coming weeks, both to clear out deadwood, and to raise additional funds for incomings.

Of the players tipped for a potential exit, none have been more widely-linked than Kieran Trippier.

The Daily Mail recently suggested that full-back Trippier is one of 8 players up for sale at Spurs this summer.

And, on the back of links with the likes of Juventus and Napoli, another European heavyweight have today been added to the 28-year-old’s list of rumoured suitors.

According to Sky Sports, German champions Bayern Munich have included Trippier on a shortlist of right-back targets.

The Bavarians are on the lookout for a backup/competition for Joshua Kimmich, following Rafinha’s departure.

And Trippier is said to be one of a number of candidates to fill the role.

Sky add, though, that a move to the Allianz Arena remains unlikely, due to the Tottenham stopper’s price-tag.
