Transfer rumours around Tottenham Hotspur over the last month have been predominantly focussed on the future of Kyle Walker, with it looking increasingly likely the defender will leave Spurs this summer.

The England international is repeatedly linked with a move to Manchester City, with Pep Guardiola’s men in the market for a new right-back this summer.

While Tottenham will be reluctant to sell Walker given his importance to the team, should they opt to offload him to their Premier League rivals, a potential opportunity could open up.

Spurs are likely to try and bring in a new striker this summer to complement Harry Kane and in City starlet Kelechi Iheanacho a player that is reportedly available looks like an excellent option.

The young Nigerian has proven that he can score in the Premier League and could well benefit from Mauricio Pochettino’s guidance in North London.

Iheanacho’s agent has recently admitted that the striker could leave City this summer and as such Spurs are in an excellent position to land him given the Etiahd Stadium outfit’s reported interest in Walker.

A deal where City paid £20 million and sent the African attacker to Tottenham would surely suit all parties.

  1. Now that sounds a good idea for both teams but city won’t want to strengthen Spurs
    And will be happier to a straight deal between £40m- £50m.

  2. Apparently, according to Iheanacho’s agent, Citeh won’t sell to Spurs as they are direct rivals.
    That being the case, Daniel Levy should negotiate a fee with Citeh that has to be more than Citeh paid for John Stones, £50 million (seen as he is coming into his peak years, he is on a long contract and, frankly, because Citeh have publicly and blatantly tapped-up Walker). Once negotiations are over, Levy should then announce that he is slapping a £10 million surcharge for selling to direct rivals, and a £25 million surcharge for Citeh refusing to sell to Spurs. Both of which will be removed the second Citeh publicly announce that they are willing to sell to Spurs and with no added direct rival value.

    Simple, really.

  3. I am still pinching my self it is Kyle walker we are talking about, well done Poch. Seriously, if Poch wants Iheanacho can be included in the deal as city are desperate for wing backs.
    Poch will be learning a vital lesson of what happens when you don’t win trophies this summer, it will be bad for Spurs, let’s hope this turkish guy Under and Sessingnon are signed and at least one of them go on to be successful.

  4. I’ve been saying we should sign him for months.
    If they won’t sell to us, please tell me why we should sell to them? After all doesn’t the term rival go both ways?
    We need to start being the ones to lay down the rules, instead of laying down having our bellies tickled.
    Ihnacheo + 20m or no Deal. We’ll sell somewhere else, how about United – I’m sure we can get Martial / Shaw of them in exchange. Time we stood our ground and got the upper hand
