Atletico Madrid on the verge of signing Tottenham defender

    Atletico Madrid are on the brink of signing Tottenham Hotspur right-back Kieran Trippier after the clubs agreed on a transfer fee, according to the reports from England

    Los Colchoneros were on the hunt for a right-back ever since Juanfran rejected to extend his contract at the end of the season.

    Diego Simeone is eager to bolster his defensive options as Diego Godin, Lucas Hernandez, and Filipe Luis all followed in the footsteps of Juanfran and left the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.

    As reported by the British publication, Evening Standard, La Liga giants have found an agreement with the Spurs for the 28-year-old and will reportedly fork out £25m to lure him away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

    The England international has been previously followed by Juventus, Napoli, and Bayern Munich, but will eventually continue his career in the Spanish top tier.

    Meanwhile, with the imminent departure of the former Burnley man, Mauricio Pochettino will now rely on the highly-rated youngster Kyle Walker-Peters, as well as, the experienced Serge Aurier.
