Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern are in high spirits this week, after their weekend victory in the North London derby ensured they finished above rivals Arsenal for the first time in 22 years.
The Lilywhites still retain a slim chance of winning the Premier League title this season, as they currently sit four points behind leaders Chelsea, but fans in the bar are aware that success is unlikely and they’re instead focusing on possible changes this summer that can make them competitors again next season.
An immense amount of speculation has continued to surround the future of Kyle Walker this week, with Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola prioritising a summer swoop for the England international, but Spurs fans are confident they already have the ideal replacement.
ESPN state Tottenham are ready to offer a new long-term contract to right-back Kieran Trippier, as they look to secure the services of the defender- who has been attracting interest from Premier League rivals Everton.
Trippier started Sunday’s North London derby victory and also featured ahead of Walker for the FA Cup semi-final defeat to Chelsea, which has led our landlord to believe there is something going on behind the scenes with Walker.
Is Trippier good enough to fill-in the void left by a possible Walker exit? Let us know in the comments below!
