Manchester City are set to enter talks with Tottenham over the signing of Kyle Walker, according to Sky Sports.
Walker has been linked with a move away from Spurs for two months now and the player is believed to keen on a joining a northern club so he can be closer to his hometown of Sheffield.
The potential exit comes after a reported falling out with manager Mauricio Pochettino. The Tottenham boss is thought to have concerns over Walker’s fitness and ability to play more than one match a week, something the defender strongly disagrees with.
That row led to Walker being dropped for big games against Chelsea and Arsenal in April, losing his place in the first team to Kieran Trippier.
According to Sky, Manchester City hope to sign the the 27-year-old for around £40 million, but Spurs value him closer to £50 million. Some reports suggest Tottenham could even ask for as much as £60 million.
It will be a shame to see Walker leave, but it seems inevitable at this stage. Thankfully Spurs are unlikely to sell any other stars this summer.
