As Spurs look to secure Champions League football for next season with a strong finish to the season, we start to look at who might leave and who might come in over the summer. Here are three Spurs men that could leave the club, and it would be a massive blow if they did.
1) Kyle Walker
I would say that Kyle Walker is the best right-back in the Premier League. His defensive abilities are sometimes the least of some team’s worries when they line up against the Englishman. If Walker’s final ball improved just a little bit, then he would be world-class.
The 26-year-old has been a key figure under Mauricio Pochettino at White Hart Lane, showing his versatility, being able to master the right-wing-back role as well as his more familiar right-full-back role.
However, the Englishman’s outstanding form in North London has not gone unnoticed. Barcelona have not really properly replaced Dani Alves since he left the club last season, and Walker has found a way onto their summer shortlist. I doubt a change in manager with Luis Enrique leaving at the end of this season would have much of an affect on Barcelona’s interest, who could put in a high bid this summer according to the London Evening Standard.
Walker’s attacking threat would be sorely missed if he made a move away at the end of this season. In 25 Premier League games this term, Walker has created 32 chances and provided five assists for Spurs.
