This summer, Bayern have been widely connected with the 33-year-old, and according to Mirror Football, Walker is getting closer to relocating to Germany. The full-back’s contract only has one year left on it, and after City offered him a two-year extension, it was initially anticipated that he would reject Bayern.

Walker is believed to have been pleased by Bayern’s tenacity in their pursuit of bringing him to the Allianz Arena. At the tail end of the previous campaign, Walker unexpectedly caught Bayern’s attention, sparking discussions between Walker’s representation and the Bundesliga team.

Thomas Tuchel, the manager of Bayern, reportedly named Walker one of his top priorities for the summer and is reportedly willing to offer him a two-year contract.Walker has always wanted to play abroad before retiring, and he is aware that Bayern Munich is still one of the top clubs in Europe.

He hopes to play frequently next season to secure his place in the England squad for Euro 2024 after losing his spot as a first-team regular last season, most notably by being benched for the Champions League final.

Walker’s contract only has a year left, but City are reportedly asking for a fee of up to £20 million.

According to The Sun, Bayern is’ready to offer’ Pavard to City as part of a trade for Walker, though. The Bavarian top brass is prepared to let the World Cup winner leave as he has only one year left on his contract and has made it known to them that he wants to leave.

Walker’s replacement should be the adaptable Frenchman, who can play both at right-back and in the middle of the defense.

The Bundesliga’s top clubs are also reportedly increasing more optimistic about their chances of landing Harry Kane, Walker’s former colleague at Tottenham.

After having two offers for Kane rejected, Bayern’s chief executive Jan-Christian Dreesen met with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy on Thursday, and according to Mirror Football, they are preparing a third offer.
