In Focus: £45m for Walker could be well used at Tottenham Hotspur

As reported by The Express, Tottenham Hotspur’s Kyle Walker may be on the verge of leaving the club with Bayern Munich set to come in with a mega offer both in terms of transfer fee and wages.

What’s the story?

Walker is a key figure in Mauricio Pochettino’s squad but their resolve to keep the defender is set to be tested by a European giant.

The Express reckon the £45m-rated right-back is a person of interest for Bayern Munich, who are willing to meet his potential £150,000-a-week wage demands.

The question is, should Spurs sell or should they resist all attempts to take him away from London?

Should Spurs sell?

With 39 appearances for Pochettino’s side this season, it’s clear Walker is a massive part of the current set-up at Spurs and in order to continue their progress, they’ll need to keep the vast majority of the current XI intact. Spurs should be looking to add to the existing spine of the team, not take away from it.

That said, there’s a lot of truth in the theory that you should maximise your assets and reinvest and the reported £45m fee for the defender is a very tempting prospect.

Pochettino will need a deep squad next season if his side are to compete in the league and in Europe and using those kind of resources will be key.

The fact that there’s a willing buyer from another league is key too. It would less than ideal if he ended up at one of their title and top four contenders but selling him to the likes of Bayern Munich is relatively low risk.
