Bayern Munich could be set to beat Manchester City in the race for Tottenham defender Kyle Walker, a report claims.

City are reportedly ready to make an official approach this week for the England international, but now they have competition.

According to The Express on Sunday, the German giants have been monitoring the 27-year-old and are ready to make their own assault for the full-back.

Walker is reportedly valued at £45million, and Carlo Ancelotti is seeking a replacement for Philipp Lahm who retired at the end of last season.

The Italian boss believes that Walker, who would apparently cost £150k-a-week in wages, would slot into the role perfectly.

City meanwhile are still searching for a full-back option as they are struggling to complete the signing of Monaco’s Benjamin Mendy due to failure to agree a fee.

Dani Alves is a possible option for the Sky Blues, with reports claiming he could move to the Premier League in a cut-price deal from Juventus.
