Manchester City are reported to have opened negotiations with Tottenham over a deal for Kyle Walker.

Pep Guardiola is on the hunt for full-backs after Pablo Zabaleta, Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna were all released at the end of last season.

The BBC is reporting that talks have been opened between City and Spurs, with the north London side side to be looking for anything between £50million-£60million.

Simon Stone’s story says: “Negotiations for the England international are at an early stage, and no fee has been agreed.

“Fellow full-back Kieran Tripper is reportedly set to sign a new five-year deal with Spurs, which could pave the way for Walker to move to City.”

Sheffield United are understood to be due 10 per cent of any fee Tottenham receive over the £3million they are reported to have paid for the 27-year-old in 2009.

City have also been linked with a move for Dani Alves, with the Brazilian’s exit from Juventus now confirmed by the Serie A champions.
