Kieran Trippier’s 10-week lack from Atletico Madrid’s first-team due to the fact that of betting irregularities makes sure to trigger the Spanish outfit untold problems.

The previous Tottenham Hotspur man had actually settled well into life at the Wanda Metropolitano, and with Atleti sitting pretty at the top of the La Liga table heading into the final fixture of the year, Diego Simeone might well have actually done without his loss up until February.

Nevertheless, it appears that the manager has currently determined a replacement and, what’s more, Don Balon report that any deal is for a permanent switch instead of just a loan to cover Trippier’s hiatus.

Simeone is looking towards North London again, however this time it’s an Arsenal player that has actually stimulated his interest.

Don Balon suggest that Ainsley Maitland-Niles, who Los Colchoneros attempted to unsuccessfully sign in the summer, is being targeted once again.

A cost of ₤ 20m is estimated, and at that price, providing that the Gunners want to offer on this event, the player is a genuine deal.
