HYS: Should Spurs cash in on Kyle Walker?

Kyle Walker may have claimed a place in the PFA Team of the Year – and rightly so – but his future at Tottenham Hotspur isn’t exactly certain. Recent reports from The Telegraph claim Manchester City are interested in signing the 25-cap England international, whilst Spurs are surprisingly prepared to listen to offers.

At this point, Walker is up there with the best attacking full-backs in Europe, notching up the most assists – five – of any Premier League defender this season. But there is some logic to The Telegraph’s allegations; instead of agreeing an improved contract to help fend off interest, Spurs could land a big sum for Walker this summer with his current terms not due to expire until 2021.

Likewise, Mauricio Pochettino already has a ready-made understudy at his disposal in Kieran Trippier, who – despite having to wait for his chances this season – is arguably even better than Walker going forward, boasting a lethal delivery with his right foot.

So, Spurs fans, should the Lilywhites cash in on Walker this summer? Let us know by voting below…
