The Man City fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for Kyle Walker to join the club this summer, and the reported £45 million price tag certainly hasn’t put them off…
In modern day football, player prices are through the roof, and for Man City – a defensive rebuild is absolutely essential at the Etihad this summer. Former key players like Gael Clichy, Pablo Zabaleta and Bacary Sagna have played their last games for the club, and so it is clear that a few new defenders will be making their way to the Etihad this summer.
Kyle Walker would, without doubt, be a fantastic addition – not least because of how well he would fit in at the Etihad. Pep Guardiola’s play style places a heavy emphasis on attacking players with pace, and Walker certainly fits in that mould. He is very efficient going forward, and he has been a real creative outlet for Tottenham over the last few years down the right-hand side. That said, the defensive side of his game has come on leaps and bounds in recent years too – and so he would certainly be an impressive asset for Man City at the back.
There is talk of a move for Dani Alves, but that shouldn’t put Man City off the prospect of a move. With so many competitions being fought on so many fronts, depth is absolutely key – and Walker can be a long-term solution for the Citizens.
