Don Hutchinson urges Liverpool to move for £50m Manchester City star

Don Hutchinson has tipped Liverpool to make a move for Kyle Walker, with the Manchester City star expected to move on this summer.

Taking to Twitter, the pundit posted that he would like to see the England international at Anfield, with Liverpool likely to sign a right-back as Trent Alexander-Arnold looks to reprise his new role as an inverted fullback next season.

If I were Liverpool Ide be signing Kyle Walker in a heartbeat ..

Walker was key in City’s treble-winning season as the Manchester giants finally ended their European curse with victory in the UEFA Champions League. And speculation is now rife that the defender could leave the Etihad Stadium.

Indeed, whilst a move to Liverpool seems fanciful, Walker would be an ideal player for Jurgen Klopp and his new system, with the right-back likely to be a good defensive partner and competition for Alexander-Arnold in the upcoming campaign.

City’s £50m investment in Walker has been nothing but a homerun, with the defender one of the best in his position in the world and a player who most clubs would love to have on their books. And Liverpool are no exception, though a move will be impossible given their rivalry with the Manchester side.

Moreover, with Walker at a stage in his career where he will want to be a guaranteed starter, Liverpool might not be able to offer the England superstar this demand even with Alexander-Arnold expected to make the move fully into central midfield.
