Manchester City are confident they can tempt Tottenham into selling Kyle Walker this summer, according to The Telegraph.

Earlier this week we relayed reports suggesting Walker had held talks with Mauricio Pochettino about his Spurs future. The right-back is believed to be re-assessing his situation amid interest from Manchester City.

The Telegraph claims City think they can sign Walker this summer after giving up hope on luring Danny Rose to the Etihad.

Walker currently earns £70,000-a-week at White Hart Lane — his potential suitors would have no problem in offering the right-back far more.

The story suggests Tottenham want in excess of £30 million if Walker is to leave, and Daniel Levy would rather sell the 26-year-old to a foreign club if Pochettino is happy for him to depart.

Walker has become one of the best full-backs in the Premier League under Pochettino’s management, but was believed to be disappointed after being left out of the starting line-up in the FA Cup semi-final defeat to Chelsea last weekend.

I’d love to see Walker stay, but don’t expect these Manchester City links to go away any time soon.

  1. Walker would only be allowed to leave Spurs if Pochettino deems him surplus to requirements. Although Walker has been in fine form this season, this wasn’t always the case with his erratic air head play however, he’s come on leaps and bounds this season under Pochettino’s guidance. I don’t have any belief in any newspaper and they all make up a variety of stories for reasons known only to themselves, some more than others. My personal take on this is due to the fact that every time Trippier comes in, he plays very well and it’s noted and suggests to me that Walker is worried his days as automatic first choice full back are numbered because of the praise Trippier receives and has supposedly run to the manager for some love and assurances. With regards other clubs looking at him, I attribute that nonsense to his agent because for the life of me, I simply cannot see either Bayern or Barcelona making a big money offer for him. I may be doing Walker a huge disservice but I don’t think that he’s the sharpest pencil in the box and if he did have a modicum of grey matter between his ears, will realise that under Pochettino, Spurs are on the rise and after a hell of a slumber, the beast is finally waking up at long last. He could be part of something very special about to happen at THFC.

  2. No way should we let Walker go no way we should let any of our squad go. I would like to see Kevin Wimmer adopt a left sided defensive holding midfielders role like dier and wanyama. Both are right footed. Dembele although a left footer he is not a defensive midfielder. If dier or wanyama were to get injured long term then we would be in trouble. Winks is good but not a monster holding player like Wimmer Dier or Wanyama.
