Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are pushing a deal to beat Manchester City to sign Tottenham Hotspur right-back Kyle Walker, according to the Daily Express
The Tottenham defender is currently a man in demand as teams battle for his signature.
But with Manchester City reportedly being closer than ever to signing Juventus and former Barcelona fullback Dani Alves, it is Die Roten who are currently in pole position to sign the 27-year-old fullback.
Kyle Walker, a strong and pacey right-back who loves getting forward could be a very good replacement for former Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm who retired at the end of last season.
The England international appeared 39 times for Spurs last season, contributing with 6 assists, helping Mauricio Pocchetino’s side to finish as runner-up of Premier League.
The 27-year-old will reportedly land a £150,000-a-week contract in Bavaria, figures that Tottenham arguably can’t match, and so it looks as though the first high-profile exit could be seen in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, it probably won’t be a huge blow for Guardiola, as per the report, as he now is close to sealing a deal with Juventus for Dani Alves, whilst also trying to get a deal over the line for Monaco defender Benjamin Mendy with the Ligue 1 champions raising their demands to £40m for the French international.
