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.
