The England international is currently preparing for fixtures with Scotland and France respectively, but it has been claimed that Manchester City want to push through the transfer once he has returned from international duty.

With Pablo Zabaleta , Bacary Sagna and Gael Clichy all leaving the Etihad Stadium, City boss Pep Guardiola is eager to bring in full-backs during the summer transfer window.

During the closing weeks of the season, the 27-year-old did not always feature in the starting lineup with head coach Mauricio Pochettino handing Kieran Trippier a role at right wing-back.

However, Walker still went on to make 37 appearances in all competitions, with 31 starts coming in the Premier League.
