The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are concerned about reports linking Kyle Walker with a move away this summer…
Of course, the Englishman has been an important part of proceedings at White Hart Lane for several years now, but our landlord thinks that it might be time for Mauricio Pochettino to cash in.
After all, having been left on the bench on more than one occasion in recent weeks, Tottenham have proven that they don’t need to rely on the Englishman anymore. He has certainly been an excellent servant, but with the fantastic Kieran Trippier waiting in the wings – is Walker really a necessary component of Pochettino’s side anymore?
Fitness issues have often been a problem for Walker during his career, and this is certainly something that Tottenham will need to consider given the frequency of their games, with the defender having missed a number of important fixtures this season.
Walker, who is rated at £17m by TransferMarkt, would certainly attract the interest of a number of sides – and whilst that may serve to strengthen Tottenham’s rivals, it is unlikely to downgrade the quality of their team. Indeed, Pochettino has far more pressing matters to attend to, and the funds made available by his sale could be placed in far weaker areas of his side.
Of course, if it can be avoided, keeping the Tottenham defence together would be great, but if Tottenham need to sell in order to buy this summer, it may well be time for Walker to move on.
