Spurs are set to beat Liverpool, West Ham and Southampton in the race for defender Kieran Trippier's signature in a deal worth £3.5m, according to The Mail.

Right-back Trippier was a product of Man City's youth system but failed to break into the first team, finding himself out on loan to Barnsley before signing for Burnley. Liverpool were understood to be first in line for his signature this summer, but a disappointing end to the season and very public player spats have allowed Spurs to muscle in on their man. 

Spurs do have Kyle Walker of course, but his constant injuries should provide Trippier with all the first team football he could ever want. 

Newly promoted Bournemouth were also said to be in the race for Trippier, as manager Eddie Howe signed the player from Manchester City when in charge at Turf Moor. 

The 24 year old is said to be in advanced talks with Pochettino.
