Juventus and Napoli are continuing to battle it out for the services of Tottenham defender Kieran Trippier.

Trippier made 36 appearances for Spurs last season, but it was a mixed campaign for the defender following the highs of the World Cup with England last summer.

Tottenham look set to cash in on the right-back during the close season and both Napoli and Juventus are keen to take him to Serie A.

Napoli have always been considered favourites to do a deal and have invested a lot of energy in trying to lure him to the south coast of Italy.

It is thought that Trippier has already visited Naples to check out the area and would be interested in making the switch, should Tottenham decide to sell.

Juve have now also entered the race following the appointment of former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri, who has seen Trippier at close quarters over the last 12 months.

Both Italian clubs are in need of a new right-back with Joao Cancelo tipped to leave Juve, while Elseid Hysaj may be heading for the exit door at Napoli.
