However, this is not the only deal that Spurs are set to complete from their Premier League rivals, with the Independent claiming that they are moving ahead of Liverpool in the race for hotshot forward Danny Ings.
Both Trippier and Ings have been vital components of Burnley’s ascension to the Premier League, and their attempts to stay in the top flight. Although Sean Dyche’s men failed to secure survival, the duo both impressed, and it is no surprise that they have gained admirers from England’s top division.
Any club that could sign either of the duo would be gaining the services of a talented and young English footballer, but Spurs may just be set to complete the best transfer business of the entire window - by signing them as a pair.
As Burnley won promotion from the Championship last season, Trippier registered 14 assists from full-back, the highest in the entire division. What is more impressive is the partnership that he built with Ings, with 14 of those assists being for the 22-year-old striker.
That assist to goal scorer tally was also the highest in the league, and the partnership became a feared one in the Championship.
With the step up in quality, the duo have obviously lost some of their attacking threat, and Trippier has been tasked with being a more defensive full-back. Still he has four assists, whilst Ings has 11 goals, and if playing in a team who are allowed more creative freedom, they are sure to reignite that partnership in the Premier League.
The names and reputations might make Spurs’ business seem underwhelming on paper, but in reality, the Lilywhites could complete the best transfer business in the entire window if deals are agreed for both Trippier and Ings.
