Napoli pushing Tottenham to drop price for Kieran Trippier

Napoli are pushing Tottenham to drop their price for Kieran Trippier.

The Sun says the Italians have asked Spurs about a summer deal for the England right-back and have him on a shortlist of five players in that position.

But they are expecting a price-tag of £40million to be slapped on the World Cup star, according to Italian sources.

Trippier, 28, has three years left on his current contract at Spurs which has kept his market value high.

Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti, however, would be expected to spend around £20million on a new full-back in the summer.
