Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that his side are interested in signing Tottenham Hotspur right-back Kieran Trippier.
The England international’s stock has dropped significantly over the past nine months, leading to rumours that he will be allowed to leave North London.
Italian side Napoli have been strongly linked with the 28-year-old, and reports in Italy suggest that the defender’s wife has been in Naples looking at schools for their young son.
Ancelotti would like to see Trippier at the Stadio San Paolo next season, while PSV Eindhoven winger Hirving Lozano is also on his radar.
“I don’t like talking about players from other teams. Trippier’s wife in Naples? I honestly don’t know, but Naples is a beautiful city, there are people who come on holiday,” he is quoted as saying by Calciomercato.
“But Lozano and Trippier are players who we are evaluating, then later there is everything else that is much more complex. Negotiations, players who prefer other things. These are among the players we are interested in.”
Trippier has started 26 of Tottenham’s 37 Premier League matches this season and has also been used regularly in the Champions League.
