According to the Independent, Walker and his Argentine coach haven’t seen eye-to-eye for a while now, and the England international was dropped for Sunday’s North London Derby victory over Arsenal at White Hart Lane.
Reportedly, Walker wants to see a fresh challenge, with his 27th birthday coming up later this month, and the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and even Barcelona would be interested in bidding for the £35 million-rated right-back.
But what does all this mean for Spurs fans? Just when they think they’re about to get one over on Arsenal, one of their best players leaves? Here’s some of the best reactions so far:
If Kyle Walker wants to leave he can go fuck himself as far as I'm concerned

Can't work out why Kyle Walker would want to leave. Bit disappointing given this is really his first solid season …

If Kyle Walker really wants to go, he can go and get his money. Trips can do the job

I would sell Kyle Walker and keep Trippier no questions asked.

If Kyle Walker is really on the outs we need to make a play. Its quite a gamble I think but still…

If Kyle Walker wants to leave let him go Tripper is quality

The reaction doesn’t seem too desperate at the moment, with a few supporters not even too bothered – but what do you think of the news?
