Maurizio Sarri will make Tottenham Hotspur full-back Kieran Trippier his first summer signing if the Chelsea FC boss takes over the reins at Juventus, according to a report in England.

The Daily Star is reporting that the Blues manager has his eye on the England international as a potential recruit should he land the most prestigious job in Italian club football.

The same article states that Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is prepared to sell Trippier in the summer transfer window to fund a move for Nice full-back Youcef Atal.

According to the same story, Sarri could have competition to sign Trippier as Serie A giants Napoli and La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid are being linked with the former Burnley defender.

Trippier was part of the Tottenham team that suffered a 2-0 loss to Liverpool FC in the Champions League final in Madrid on Saturday night.

Goals from Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi sealed Liverpool FC’s sixth Champions League crown.

Trippier had a difficult night up against Sadio Mane as the England right-back looked to be one of the weak links in the Tottenham team.

The England star will be in international action later this week as Gareth Southgate’s men look to win the inaugural Uefa Nations League.
