Premier League clubs will have to shell out £20million to bring Kieran Trippier back to England this summer as Atletico Madrid name their price for the former Tottenham man.

The 29-year-old moved to the Wanda Metropolitano last summer having been surplus to requirements in north London, with the La Liga side splashing £20million on the England international.

Trippier’s strong performances in Spain have alerted the attention of a number of Premier League clubs, with some preparing to table offers for the full back this summer.

According to The Sun, Trippier has been on the lookout for new homes in the north west and there is talk that his former club, Burnley, are interested in bringing him back to Turf Moor.  

Trippier broke through at Burnley between 2011 and 2015, playing 185 times for the Clarets, scoring six goals and providing 37 assists with his phenomenal delivery from out wide. 

However, the £20million price tag set by Atletico could prove to be a stumbling block, with Burnley unwilling to meet the hefty fee for their former star.

Trippier has proved in Spain that he could do a job for a host of Premier League clubs, and consistent game time in England’s top flight may prove the catalyst for his return to the England squad. 

The 29-year-old shone in the 2018 World Cup for Gareth Southgate’s side, sending the country into bedlam when he scored the opener in the semi final defeat to Croatia. 

He has since fallen down the pecking order, with Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold ahead of him in the starting eleven.
