Kyle Walker has reportedly met with Mauricio Pochettino to discuss his future ahead of the transfer window.

The attacking English full-back is probably the most productive players in his position in England, and is the first choice for the Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate at the moment.

He has been instrumental in Pochettino’s plans for Spurs this season, and has been an integral part of the squad. However, he has constantly been linked with an exit, with the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City interested in his services this summer.

And reports from the Standard today claim that the 26-year-old has held talks with the manager recently to resolve his future.

Walker signed a new contract that sees him earn £70,000 a week just last September, but it is reported that he is aware of the pay rise that might follow with a switch this summer.

Also scouted by Barcelona, Walker has been in impeccable form this season, and there is little reason for Pochettino to think about selling him this summer. He is contracted to the club till 2021 on his new contract, and has a market value of £20m, which can treble this summer.

However, both Manchester clubs are in desperate search of full-backs for next season, and there are very few options better than Kyle Walker in the transfer market at the moment.

The likes of Danny Rose and Toby Alderweireld have also been linked with an exit, with the Premier League clubs determined to steal off one of the most consistent backlines in the domestic league.

Where do you think Walker will play next season?
