Atletico Madrid initiated contacts to snap up Tottenham defender

    Atletico Madrid have reportedly made concrete steps towards grabbing Tottenham Hotspur defender Kieran Trippier

    Ever since Kyle Walker’s departure back in 2017, the 28-year-old has nailed the right-back position as his own, becoming one of the best external defenders in the Premier League.

    Recent reports have suggested that Napoli could launch a summer bid for the English right-back, as they look to replace Elseid Hysaj, who has endured an underwhelming season.

    However, according to the British publication, Sport Witness, Atletico Madrid have approached Spurs with an official offer of €25 million plus add-ons.

    Los Colchoners need to find a replacement for the outgoing defender Juanfran, who has refused to extend his contract that runs out in the summer.

    La Liga giants appear to be looking to strengthen in that troublesome position as they are left with Santiago Arias, who has struggled for form this term and Sime Vrsaljko, who has miserably failed at his loan spell with Inter Milan.
