Kyle Walker could be heading abroad


Tottenham may have to contend with new interest in Kyle Walker amid claims from the Daily Express that Bayern Munich have joined the race for the full-back.

Manchester City have been linked with the England international all summer, but they could now miss out if the Bavarians get there first.

Carlo Ancelotti needs a replacement for retiring legend Philipp Lahm and is reportedly willing to offer Walker £150,000 a week to make the deal happen.

City will find some solace in the fact that they are expected to sign Dani Alves from Juventus, but Walker would have been a much more long-term solution to Pep Guardiola’s problems at right-back.


The 27-year-old is thought to be unhappy at Spurs after being dropped to the bench for several important games towards the end of the season, notably the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea and the home games against Arsenal and Manchester United.

Kieran Trippier earned an England call-up because of Mauricio Pochettino’s faith in him, but Walker would still be a huge loss for Spurs.

His co-ordination with Danny Rose was key to the way they played in the early months of the season before the left back’s knee injury.
