The 29-year-old left Bootham Crescent in the summer after indicating he would not sign a new deal and has been linked with a number of clubs including the Cod Army, Rotherham and Burton.

Walker, who helped fire the Minstermen back into the Football League in 2011/12, has been a long-time target of the Highbury Stadium club, who have tried to sign him on several occasions over the last few years.

And the striker would be keen on a move to the west coast.

"I leave things like that to my agent, but there are a few clubs interested so we'll see what happens," Walker said.

"I'm definitely ready for a new challenge and I just want to play at the highest level possible and do the best I can."

Alexander has had a busy summer as he shapes his squad for an assault on League Two next term, having already signed six players, including Walker's former York team-mate Matty Blair.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
