Liverpool are reportedly considering a shock transfer for Manchester City and England defender Kyle Walker, who has been strongly linked with a move away from the Etihad this summer.
Kyle Walker has been heavily touted to be leaving treble-winners Manchester City this summer, and now it’s revealed that Liverpool are one of the suitors for the 33-year-old defender, according to the Daily Mail.
The 33-year-old saw his impact and first-team berth in City’s treble-winning campaign wane as the season progressed.
He also did not start in the Champions League final triumph against Inter, with Manuel Akanji being favoured ahead of Walker, which further sparked rumours of the England international being open to a move away.
That said, the club most interested in securing the England international’s signature have been Bayern Munich, who are reported to be in advanced negotiations to sign the City defender in a £15 million deal.
However, in a surprising change of stance, the Cityzens have now opened negotiations about extending his current deal, with the player keen to stay put with the Premier League champions.
And Walker himself may not be too keen on leaving City for Liverpool, knowing only too well the rivalry between the two teams in recent years.
Above the rivalry, though, it’s quite interesting to know the Reds boss is looking for a high-quality replacement in the right-back position, perhaps to reposition Trent Alexander-Arnold closer to the midfield next season.
However, he is currently negotiating a contract extension with City after a change of heart, it seems.
