Manchester City on alert after Walker fumes at being dropped for north London derby

Date Posted,April 30, 2017

Kyle Walker was furious after being dropped by Spurs, and Manchester City are primed to make a summer move.

Walker was axed for the North London derby with Arsenal when Kieran Trippier was chosen ahead of him and there is a growing belief the England full back could be sold this summer.

Tottenham right back Walker, 26, has held talks with Mauricio Pochettino and knows he can more than double his current £55,000-a-week contract if gets a lucrative move this summer.

City have identified Walker as a prime summer target as Pep Guardiola looks to strengthen his squad with full backs among his top priority.

It was a big statement from Pochettino to leave Walker out in such a key game but it may be a sign of things to come.

Walker is still committed and has not let his level drop in training but City could prove an attractive option. Tottenham may be tempted if they get a huge offer as they already have Trippier and that could allow them to strengthen elsewhere with Burnley’s Michael Keane one of Pochettino’s targets.
