Atletico Madrid are reported to have joined the race to sign Tottenham defender Kieran Trippier.

Atleti are on the look-out for a new right-back as doubts surround the future of Juanfran, and reports claim that Trippier has now emerged as a top target.

Trippier still has three years left to run on his current deal and has been a regular in the Spurs side this season when making 35 appearances in all competitions.

However, reports in Italy claim that Spurs are ready to sell and Napoli are keen to do a deal.

Atletico can now be added to the list of admirers and a battle for his signature could be on the cards.

Tottenham remain focused on the Champions League final and no major decisions will be taken until after the clash with Liverpool in Madrid, so both clubs will have to wait.
