Much has been made of the improvement of several Tottenham players since Mauricio Pochettino took over as manager in the summer of 2014.

Danny Rose is arguably the biggest success story; the full-back, who was considered surplus to requirements by many supporters, has become one of the club’s best players over the last two seasons.

Equally impressive is the development of Kyle Walker. Previously error-prone and almost totally reliant on pace to get out of trouble, the right-back has grown in confidence and is now considered a vital competent for Spurs both defensively and offensively.

And it seems some of the European giants have taken note. The Evening Standard is exclusively reporting that Walker is on Barcelona’s summer shortlist as the La Liga club attempts to belatedly replace former full-back Dani Alves.

Walker is reportedly on £70,000-a-week at White Hart Lane, which Barcelona could obviously increase. But Daniel Levy would likely place a heft price tag on one of the club’s best assets.

The 26-year-old seems happy enough at Tottenham and the fans have been delighted with his performances of late. Here’s hoping Barcelona look elsewhere.



  1. Take a hike Barca & leave our players alone. You have enough problems to be get on with, without upsetting our team & the progress we’re making under poche & co.

  2. We’re doing fine under the current regime & don’t need the likes of Barca or anyone else trying to unsettle our players go back to taking kids off d backstreets of south America like you’ve done in the past n leave our club alone.

  3. The only problem I see here is Mr levy saying yes to Barcelona as they have a vast amount of money to spend, and Levy being the businessman that he is and always has been would be more than tempted to say yes. Only to go and blow all the money on a load of mediocre players from shit clubs like he did the Gareth Bale money….and then sell most of them within a season ?
