Manchester City looked to have Kyle Walker’s transfer from Tottenham all wrapped up, but it now appears Spurs have increased their asking price for the full-back.
Originally asking for £40 million for Walker, Tottenham have now increased the price due to the transfers of other players in this summer’s market. Spurs saw the amount Liverpool were willing to pay Southampton for Virgil van Dijk, and have thought twice about Walker’s valuation. The club are now asking Manchester City for £60m for Walker’s signature.
Manchester City have already splashed out £43m on attacking midfielders Bernardo Silva from Monaco. Pep Guardiola’s team are also about to sign Ederson from Benfica. His move will be a world record fee for the purchase of a goalkeeper as the Blues will part with £35m.
Manchester City are in need of full-backs after allowing Gael Clichy and Pablo Zabaleta to leave this summer on free transfers. The team may look elsewhere to find replacements.
