For months, Kyle Walker has been targeted by Pep Guardiola, exciting thousands of supporters around the world. After waiting for a painfully long amount of time, talks have finally opened between Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur according to the BBC.

It seems imminent that Walker will be accompanied by Dani Alves at the right-back position as the Brazilian has exited Juventus after only a year at the club and will sign for City in the upcoming days.

Negotiating with Spurs owner Daniel Levy is never easy, and his desired transfer fee is understood to lie somewhere around £50 million. While this is really big money for a full-back, City have almost endless funds and can make it work if Pep really wants it to happen, which he clearly does.

The right-back position has been a weakness for some time now, but it appears that things will change with the world's best right-back and England's best right-back joining the club.
