TOTTENHAM TARGET TRIPPIER UPGRADE

A report in the Daily Express claims that Spurs are ready to swoop for the 19-year-old, who was this week named in the PFA Championship Team of the Season.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is looking to offload Manchester United target Trippier after the England star suffered a huge slump in form after his World Cup heroics with the national side last summer.
