In Focus: Walker would add serious depth to Chelsea’s right flank

As reported by The Daily Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur are set to cash in on Kyle Walker this summer but only for a significant fee.

What’s the story?

Walker has been in exceptional form for Spurs this season and has become a man in demand. As such, White Hart Lane chiefs need to weigh up contribution to the team and realising his market value.

The Mirror reckon they’ve come to that decision and are willing to let him leave the club for £40m following talks between Mauricio Pochettino and Daniel Levy.

Amongst the clubs circling for his signature include Chelsea, Manchester City and Bayern Munich, say the paper.

Worth the cash?

Walker has been a key part of Mauricio Pochettino’s successful Spurs side this season, missing just four Premier League matches across the campaign. Along with Danny Rose, he’s been part of a thrilling marauding full-back set-up that has carved open defences all year.

He would certainly suit Chelsea’s 3-4-3 system seen for the majority of the season with Walker possessing the pace, endurance and attacking/defending balance to shine on the right flank.

With Victor Moses already performing well in the position, if the Blues signed the England international they would have serious strength and depth, which is needed if they are to be capable of competing both in Europe and domestically.
