Atletico Madrid have agreed a £21.7m (€24m) deal with Tottenham to sign Kieran Trippier.
Spurs were offered the chance to sign striker Angel Correa during negotiations but have instead opted for a straight cash deal.
Trippier is due in Spain on Wednesday to undergo a medical and there is confidence on all sides that the transfer can be completed by the weekend.
Trippier is also on Bayern Munich’s shortlist, while Spurs’ other right-back, Serge Aurier, is available for transfer this summer.
Marseille’s Hiroki Sakai is the type of player Tottenham want to bring in to replace Trippier and Aurier.
Trippier’s impending move was discussed on Sky Sports News‘ weekday morning show, Good Morning Transfers – with the panel of the opinion that the move would be good for player, club and even England.
“It’s great business for Tottenham,” said Sky Sports‘ Mark McAdam. “He’s been a loyal servant to the club. It takes a lot of character to go abroad, learn a different language, put yourself in a different environment. What an opportunity to work under Diego Simeone, too.”
