Over the last few weeks, the Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern have become increasingly open to the idea of selling Kyle Walker.
Though the notion of losing one of their key England internationals had previously been an unthinkable one, the form of Kieran Trippier and reports of a £40m fee have helped soften the blow amongst our north London locals.
So, reports from ESPN suggesting Manchester City are increasingly confident in landing the right-back this summer aren’t actually as damaging as you might think.
Sources close to the Sky Blues are understood to feel as if they can push a deal for the former Sheffield United man over the line, as Pep Guardiola looks to improve on a disappointing first campaign in charge.
For their part, Spurs are said to be reluctantly considering parting with the defender, who will surely rake in a word record fee for a full-back. Luke Shaw is currently the most expensive signing in that role of all time, though figures of around £40m have previously been touted for Walker.
