Tottenham Linked With A Huge Raid For High Flying Full-back With 5 Assists

Kyle Walker of Tottenham

German giants Bayern Munich are believed to be keen on signing Tottenham star Kyle Walker in the summer of 2017, according to transfermarketweb. Walker has established himself as one of the finest full-backs in the world and has even impressed as a wing-back this season, whenever Pochettino has opted to play with a 3-5-2 formation.

Even in Tottenham’s disappointing exit from the Europa league at the hands of Gent, Kyle Walker was the only player who stood out.

He put in a stellar performance for Spurs in the second leg of that tie, despite them going down to 10-men. His pace and his ability to attack at will makes him an excellent full-back and it is not surprising that Bayern actually want to sign him.

Kyle Walker is a key component of Mauricio Pochettino’s exciting set-up at White Hart Lane and with the club’s ambitions now being sky high, it would be difficult for Bayern to convince the North Londoners into the sale.

The Englishman signed a contract extension with Tottenham earlier in the season and his new deal now runs until 2021. With so many years left on the contract, Spurs would be under no pressure to sell the player. Hence, he will not come for a cheap sum for sure. Bayern may have to spend heavily if they intend to land the 26-year old.

Bayern would be desperately looking to sign a replacement for Philip Lahm and Walker would be a perfect fit. Though Walker may not be as effective as someone like Lahm, who is a legend, Kyle would still be a brilliant addition to the German club.

Our Verdict

Walker has played 33 games for Tottenham this season and has 5 assists to his name. More than the numbers, it is the element that he brings to Spurs’ build-up play that adds more value to his name. This might precisely be why the German champions want to sign him up.

There is a very less possibility of Spurs letting go of one of their key men, especially at a time when the club are making steady progress on and off the pitch.

Forget him Bayern! Maybe try to sign that Spanish right-back from our bitter rivals. They are the ones who would be willing to do business and not the Liliywhites!
