Trippier has played a key role in Tottenham’s run to the Champions League final on June 3 in Madrid.
But any potential deal would have to wait until after the European showdown against Liverpool takes place.
Napoli are also monitoring the situation of Atalanta wing-back Timothy Castagne as they look to close the gap between them and Italian giants Juventus in Serie A.
Napoli will finish second in the Italian top-flight, sitting 11 points behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Co with just one match remaining.
They will also be desperate to fare better in Europe next season, after crashing out at the Champions League group stage before losing to Arsenal in the Europa League quarter-finals.
