Though many of the Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern would hate to see any of their current crop depart, reports from the Sun have proved interesting today.
Clearly, Spurs are one of the most vibrant young sides in Europe and the idea of losing anyone isn’t the most popular, though money talks in the modern game.
Indeed, the report in question claims both Chelsea and Bayern Munich have moved ahead of Manchester City in the race to land White Hart Lane star Kyle Walker.
That sort of money for a right-back would be a world-record sum, with both Bayern and the Blues thought to be keen.
Able to operate as either a standard right-back or a wing-back in a 3-4-3, the 26-year-old would fit in at Stamford Bridge, while the Bundesliga side are said to be on the hunt for a Philipp Lahm replacement.
The sort of money on offer, as well as the presence of Kieran Trippier on Hotspur Way, means the Tottenham faithful here won’t be shedding too many tears.
