Tottenham have stuck a £60 million price tag on Kyle Walker, according to The Mirror.
Walker has been strongly linked with a summer move to Manchester City following a disagreement with manager Mauricio Pochettino in April.
Pochettino is thought to have concerns over the defender’s fitness and ability to play more than one match a week, something Walker strongly disagrees with.
As a result, the right-back is believed to keen on a move back up north so he can be closer to his hometown of Sheffield.
For weeks now the touted fee for Walker’s expected transfer to Manchester City has been widely reported as £40 million. But The Mirror claims Liverpool’s £40 million move for Southampton’s Virgil van Dijk has changed things.
Apparently Spurs think Van Dijk’s valuation is enough to raise Walker’s price tag to £60 million. It seems Daniel Levy is taking advantage of the ever-increasing market value of Premier League players.
Manchester City may be forced to look elsewhere if they are unwilling to meet Tottenham’s new valuation.
