Manchester City and Tottenham have entered talks over the potential transfer of Kyle Walker, according to BBC Sport.
Journalist Simon Stone claims: “Negotiations for the England international are at an early stage, and no fee has been agreed.”
The news follows a report in The Times suggesting Kieran Trippier has signed a new five-year contract with Spurs, confirming him as the club’s first choice right-back.
Trippier emerged as Pochettino’s preferred right-sided defender towards the end of last season following a reported row between the Tottenham boss and Walker.
Pochettino is believed to have concerns about the 27-year-old’s fitness and ability to play more than one game a week, something Walker strongly disagrees with.
As a result, Trippier started to be picked ahead of Walker for big matches, and Walker has been linked with a move to Manchester City ever since.
The transfer could drag on until the end of the transfer window with Spurs seemingly unwilling to budge on their £40 million valuation of Walker.
