City 1-3 to sign Walker following Alves snub

Manchester City are 1-3 favourites to sign Kyle Walker after missing out on target Dani Alves, who surprisingly snubbed a reunion with former boss Pep Guardiola and instead signed for Paris St-Germain.

Guardiola released right-backs Bacary Sagna and Pablo Zabaleta following the end of the last campaign and will be desperate for reinforcements.

Spurs are fully aware of that and are said to be asking for a transfer fee in the region of £50m for the England international. Hills rate Walker 9-4 to still be a Tottenham player at the end of the summer transfer window.

Tottenham could potentially spend some of the Walker money on Ross Barkley from Everton. Betway have cut Spurs from 10-11 to
8-11 to sign the midfielder before the transfer window closes.

Crystal Palace have signed Chelsea's 22-year-old midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek on loan until the end of the season.

Getafe v Alaves

Home Win Draw Away Win
Expert verdict
Getafe's five home fixtures have all been against teams in the top seven after 11 games of the season but a clash with struggling Alaves should be far easier. Narrow defeats to Real Madrid, Barcelona and Sevilla, along with victories over Real Sociedad (2-1) and Villarreal (4-0) suggest Getafe can inflict a tenth defeat in 12 league games on the shot-shy visitors.
