Tottenham Hotspurs are reportedly set to demand a fee of around £40 million for star defender, Kieran Trippier.
Manchester United are understood to be interested in the services of the Englishman who has been in spectacular form at Spurs.
According to a UK Metro report, Trippier's impressive performances both in the Premier League and with his England national football team have also attracted the interest of Serie A giants, Napoli.
The report further revealed the 28-year-old could be one of the key squad members who could depart Spurs at the end of the season.
United are keen to strengthen their defensive line after a poor campaign this season, with club boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, confirming the Red Devils will be active during the summer transfer window.
"We’ve got scouts scouring the planet for good footballers and we’ll sign players we think is the right fit – personality wise, price wise, quality wise and I’m confident we’ll get the players," the Norwegian tactician was quoted saying.
"I've been speaking to the club, we know that we have to be realistic and have a job to be done there’s no quick fix," he added.
Trippier is largely viewed as a perfect signing that can bolster United's defense owing to his experience in the Premier League.
