MADRID – England defender Kieran Trippier is on the verge of moving from Tottenham Hotspur to Atletico Madrid, reports in the Spanish and British media said on Tuesday.
English newspaper the Daily Telegraph said Trippier, 28, has travelled to the Spanish capital ahead of a move worth £20 million.
Spanish daily Marca said Atletico, who finished runners-up in La Liga last season, have turned to Trippier after failing to sign Portugal right back Nelson Semedo from Barcelona.
Atletico did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the reports from Reuters.
Trippier helped Spurs reach the Champions League final for the first time in their history last season, where they were beaten 2-0 by Liverpool in Atletico’s Wanda Metropolitano stadium.
