Manchester City have opened up talks with Tottenham Hotspur as Pep Guardiola eyes for defender Kyle Walker to potentially sign in his squad.
Both clubs have yet to come up with the player’s official market value, but according to reports, the North Londoners will not accept bid that is less than £50million.
Walker’s fellow full-back Kieran Trippier has been offered a new five-year deal with Spurs, which leaves the former to move to City.
Last season, Trippier’s strong form has impressed Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino that the coach was willing to allow Walker to leave.
Also, rumor has it that Walker’s relationship with boss has deteriorated last term.
The 27-year-old has pulled off a total of 183 Premier League appearances since joining Spurs after his departure from Sheffield United in 2009.
Meanwhile, City boss has released three full-backs at the end of the 2016/17 season including both right-sided players, Pablo Zabaleta Bacary Sagna.
Guardiola is yet to bring in replacement of former players, although Dani Alves’ already closed deal with City and confirmed exit from Serie A’s title holders.
