Kyle Walker could be a Manchester City player by the end of June, according to The Star.
The paper’s chief sports writer Jeremy Cross reveals City are confident of sealing a deal for the Tottenham defender after England’s fixtures against Scotland and France this month.
Walker has been heavily linked with a move to the Etihad for over a month now following a disagreement with Mauricio Pochettino about his fitness and ability to play more than one match a week.
Towards the end of the season, Kieran Trippier emerged as Pochettino’s first-choice right-back, selected in Spurs’ bigger games against the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal.
Although Tottenham aren’t keen on losing any first-team players this summer, the club is thought to be open to the possibility of Walker leaving if they can command a big enough fee. The rumoured figure is £40 million.
While it would be a shame to see Walker leave, Spurs are fortunate to have an able deputy in Trippier and are expected to sign further competition at right-back.
