Kieran Trippier wants to stay in the Premier League, although he is not sure if he will still be a Tottenham Hotspur player next season.
Trippier, who was one of the stars of England’s run to the World Cup semi-final last summer, had a difficult season for Spurs, in part due to a series of injuries, which caused his form to dip. He had to cope then with two big blows last week: first, he was omitted from Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the Nations League finals, and then he was on the losing Tottenham side in the Champions League final on Saturday night.
Serie A side Napoli are reported to have offered around £23 million for the 28 year old, who joined Spurs from Burnley in 2015 in a £4 million deal, but the player himself would prefer to stay in England.
