Manchester City are reportedly closing in on the summer signing of Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker.

Manchester City have reportedly moved closer to completing the signing of Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker.

With Pablo Zabaleta, Bacary Sagna and Gael Clichy all leaving the Etihad Stadium, City boss Pep Guardiola is eager to bring in full-backs during the summer transfer window.

Walker has long been linked with a return to the North-West, and according to the Daily Star, City expect to sign the 27-year-old before the end of the month.

The England international is currently preparing for fixtures with Scotland and France respectively, but it has been claimed that City want to push through the transfer once he has returned from international duty.

Walker did not always feature in the starting lineup during the closing weeks of the season, with head coach Mauricio Pochettino handing Kieran Trippier a role at right wing-back.

However, Walker still went on to make 37 appearances in all competitions, with 31 starts coming in the Premier League.
