LaLiga giants Atletico Madrid are ready to up their pursuit of Tottenham full-back Kieran Trippier this summer, according to reports.

Trippier, a key player for England at last summer’s World Cup, has had a disappointing campaign, not helped by a niggling groin injury picked up in Russia.

That poor form, despite playing in a side which reached the Champions League final and booked a top-four spot in the Premier League, has seen him dropped from the Three Lions’ squad for this week’s Nations League finals.

Spurs are understood to be willing to allow Trippier to leave the club and he has been heavily linked with a move to Juventus, Napoli and Manchester United.

And now The Sun claims that Atletico Madrid ‘are stepping up their attempts to land’ Trippier from Tottenham.

The Spanish side have narrowed their search for a new right-back down to Trippier and PSG’s Thomas Meunier.

Trippier is seen as Atletico’s ‘long-term replacement for Juanfran’ and it is understood Spurs are looking for a fee in the region of £25m.
