Man Utd, Spurs among eight threats as Newcastle face Trippier obstacles

Newcastle United are not the only suitors for Kieran Trippier after all, with a report revealing eight other Premier League clubs have made enquiries.

Trippier is Newcastle’s top target for their first transfer window since their change of ownership. Thanks to their newfound wealth, they will be hoping to make a statement in January. Despite their relegation battle, they retain hope of attracting high-calibre players.

Signing Trippier would be a useful move. The England international has plenty of experience and helped Atletico Madrid win La Liga last season. At 31 years of age, though, it may be time for him to return to his home country.

Atletico will not stand in his way should their valuation be met and a replacement lined up. Trippier is believed to be ready to accept Newcastle’s offer to become their highest earner.

But as the timeframe in which they can complete a transfer approaches, further obstacles have appeared. According to 90min, they are only one of nine Premier League clubs to have made enquiries about Trippier.

Also showing an interest are Manchester United, who made Trippier a top target in the summer. They could not agree a deal, though.

The report also suggests Tottenham would be willing to take Trippier back after selling him to Atletico in 2019.

Other clubs to be named in the report are Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, Everton and Wolves. The identities of the other two clubs making up the nine interested parties are not disclosed.

It still seems like Newcastle are the main contenders for Trippier’s signature. However, this may be an encouragement for them to accelerate their negotiations.

Trippier transfer to aid World Cup hopes

Wherever he ends up, Trippier wants to boost his chances of making it into England’s squad for the 2022 World Cup. He may have the best chance of doing so in the Premier League, even though he has remained in international contention while playing his club football in Spain.

There are several clubs willing to offer him the platform he wants. It will all depend on whether Atletico are willing to sell. But with his contract expiring at the end of the season, it would make sense. They are wary of him leaving…
