City confident on signing Tottenham Kyle walker

Manchester City are set to begin talks with Tottenham over the potential signing of Kyle Walker. City coach Pep Guardiola is confident of landing the England right-back, with City expected to begin negotiations after England’s match against France tonight. However, Tottenham, who gave Walker a new five-year contract last September, are under no pressure to sell the 27-year-old. The right back is also reluctant to leave the North London team, where he has spent the past eight years, but he is understood to have been unhappy at not being selected for particular games towards the end of the season, as coach Mauricio Pochettino rotated him with Kieran Trippier. Manchester City are therefore hoping to tempt Walker to the Etihad by offering to make him their primary right back. City has already signed goalkeeper Ederson and attacker Bernardo Silva, and are close to landing Mexican winger Hirving Lozano.
