The Gunners right-back Bacary Sagna is hotly tipped to be the next experienced player to leave the Arsenal squad after Theo Walcott leaves in January, with rumours stating that Inter Milan are keen on taking Sagna to Serie A.
Now the Lancashire Telegraph has reported that Arsenal scouts were at Ipswich Town this weekend to watch the performance of the Burnley defender Kieran Trippier, who has been extremely impressive since arriving at Turf Moor from Manchester City in the summer of 2011.
The 22 year-old spent four seasons at the Etihad but didn’t appear once for the Man City first team, and spent most of his time out on loan. He first came to Turf Moor on a six month loan but Burnley were more than happy to make the move permanent last Christmas and he ended up being voted Player of the Year by both the Burnley fans as well as his team-mates.
Trippier has obviously improved since leaving City and has represented England at all levels up to the U21s so he is certainly talented. Whether he is good enough to become the permanent backup to Carl Jenkinson will be left to Arsene Wenger’s judgement I guess……
