Spurs would be simply silly to reject Juventus advances for England man: Opinion

Spurs are this summer looking to finally spend a bit of money and build on the impressive squad Mauricio Pochettino has at his disposal.

Champions League finalists last season, the Londoners are edging ever closer to finally landing some silverware it would seem, but another summer of non-spending will surely hold the club back as they look to bring some success back for the fans.

However, while bringing in players is going to be key, Spurs also have plenty of players who other clubs are interested in, not least Kieran Trippier, who is reportedly being lined up for a £30m bid by Italian giants, Juventus.

And here in the Tavern, we think that Spurs simply cannot afford to reject such an offer for a player who has not had his finest year whatsoever in the white of Spurs.

Trippier has looked off the pace for a good few months now, never seemingly quite getting over the hangover from England’s 2018 World Cup campaign over in Russia.

While he remains a threat from dead balls and is full of energy up and down the right hand side, mistakes have crept into his game, and he doesn’t look half the player he did for Pochettino’s men during the 2017/18 campaign.

£30m is a huge chunk of change as well should that be the bid Juventus come in with, and for a right back not at the top of his game, Spurs simply have to be snapping their hands off.

That money could be reinvested back into the squad, and with young players like Kyle Walker-Peters breaking into the first-team fold, the loss of Trippier and the addition of £30m in the coffers could be just the ticket for the club as they continue to build towards success.
