Tottenham Hotspur might have a tough summer ahead, as they look set to lose their first-choice right-back, Kyle Walker.
The England international has been one of the best players in his position in the Premier League this season. He is one of the most productive defenders in the competition, and is the first choice for both club and country at the moment.
Walker was a wanted man even at the start of the season, but Spurs managed to tie him down to a long-term deal which will see him stay at the club till 2020. However, he only earns £70,000-a-week on his current contract, and could be tempted away from the White Hart Lane by financial incentives.
However, according to reports from Independent, Walker is looking to quit the club at the end of the season due to some other issues.
The 26-year-old has been a regular in the first team for Spurs this season, but he was not a part of the side that lost to Chelsea in the FA Cup semifinal recently. He was also dropped from the first team this weekend, because the manager did not want him to play in two high-profile fixtures in one week.
This has reportedly angered Kyle Walker, who is now looking to manufacture an exit at the end of the season. But the report also adds that, with more than three years left on his current contract, he will not be available for anything less than £50m this summer.
It is understood that the likes of Barcelona, Manchester City, and Manchester United are all interested in his signature, and each of the clubs will be more than happy to improve on his weekly wages enormously as well.
