Tottenham Hotspur were impressive last season under Pochettino with most of their key players making a significant impact on the pitch to power them to the 2nd position behind the league leaders. Kyle Walker, who was one of the key performers for Spurs in the last league campaign is being reported to have had a disagreement with the club management and could be on his way out of the club this summer.
Earlier reports placed Pep Guardiola’s Man City at the frontline in the list of clubs interested in his signature. However, emerging reports indicate that German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have joined the race and are interested in acquiring the services of the full back.
Kyle Walker carved a niche for himself as the first choice right-back for Spurs last season and also as one of the best and consistent right-backs in the Premier League. However, there were reported rifts between him and the manager towards the end of last season which supposedly led to his exclusion from crucial games with Kieran Trippier taking his place.
Although Kyle Walker is reportedly determined to leave the club, the new long-term contract he signed with Spurs last year places the club in pole position to decide any transfer dealings and negotiations, as they do not have to agree to any transfer deal if the price offered does not meet their valuation of the player
According to reports from The Sun, Bayern Munich have now joined the race to sign Kyle Walker with the intention of using the English man as a replacement for Phillip Lahm who retired at the end of last season. There are also indications that a £45 million offer will be enough to secure Kyle Walker’s signature. However, the emerging interests from high profile clubs may result in an increment in the transfer fee.
