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.

Atl Madrid v Sevilla

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Sevilla haven't conceded a league goal since the 35th minute of their opening game
Expert verdict
Sevilla have made the most of a soft sequence of early-season fixtures, winning their last four league games to nil, but bookmakers expect that fine run to end at Atletico Madrid's new stadium. However, Atleti limped to a 1-0 win over Malaga in their first game at their new home and it will surely be a less intimidating venue than their old fortress at the Vicente Calderon.
