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.

  1. Homegrown England international at the peak of his career at 27yrs of age. Rival club purchasing the talent has to be for a premium. If J Stones/R Sterling were £50m, Silva £43m and the goalkeeper from Benfica £35.8m. Walker at £60m is the minimum. I’m glad Mr Levy is our negotiator and collector of payments 🙂 #COYS

  2. We should try and keep him. So what if he can only ‘fully’ be at his best for one game per week. We have Trippier who can step in for every ‘other’ game. They’re both great full backs and we should consider ourselves lucky to have two players competing not just for Spurs, but England. We can’t just rely on Trippier if Walker leaves, and we won’t (you just know it) find another right back currently of equal stature, anywhere. Sure, we could find someone with potential, but we need to make hay with this developed squad while the sun shines, and we need our best to stay in that squad (as well as us adding to it). We blew the Bale money (mostly), and suffered for it ..so no, even to £60m! Let’s consolidate on what we’ve built and go out and win trophies next year!
