TFF regularly opines that there is seldom smoke without fire in the transfer market. And reports have been simmering all summer that Manchester City will make a move for the Tottenham full-back Kyle Walker.
Well there appear to be developments if The Daily Star is to be believed. They report today that Manchester City have held talks with Tottenham over a move for the brilliant 26-year-old.
Talks between the clubs have taken place, with City willing to meet the asking price of Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.
That fee is said to be in the region of £40 million and it’s huge amount of money for a defender. But Walker is probably worth the money because he offers so much going forward as well is in defence.
His defending has improved over the last few years and so has his final ball. He gets up and down that wing so well and offers genuine attacking threat in the final third as well as a great whipped in cross from the right hand side. He’s got more pace than many a top winger and at 26 he still has at least five years of top football left in him.
Manchester City clearly have weaknesses in their full back areas and have let two veterans go this summer.
Manchester City fans: is he good enough for the first team or do you still think there are frailties in his game?
