German giants Bayern Munich are hoping to pip Manchester City to the signing of Tottenham Hotspur right-back Kyle Walker by launching a £45 million bid for him this week.

Bayern boss Carlo Ancelotti is looking for a replacement for the retired Philipe Lahm and believes that Walker fits the bill, and that a contract worth £150,000 per week would be enough to bring him to Bavaria, according to the Sunday Express.

City have long been thought to be in pole position to sign Walker, who it is believed wants to leave Spurs, and could double his £75,000-a-week wages elsewhere. However, any bid from Bayern could leave City lagging behind and put a spanner in manager Pep Guardiola’s rebuilding plans.

Walker could be one of a number of Spurs stars to leave the club in this transfer window, with several clubs coveting stars such as Danny Rose, Eric Dier and Dele Alli.
