Chelsea are set to make a shock move to sign Tottenham full-back Kyle Walker according to Sports Direct News.

Jose Mourinho has earmarked a bid for the impressive young 23 year old England man, perhaps feeling that the right-back is a better bet than the current options for the position in his Blues squad.

The former Sheffield United man has been a virtual ever present at White Hart Lane over the past two seasons, having spent a fair bit of time out on loan learning his trade at QPR and Aston Villa before finding his feet at the North London club.

Walker has amassed 95 appearances in the last two campaigns and has five England national team caps to his name but perhaps the chance to make the ‘step-up’ to Chelsea would tempt the talented full-back, knowing that a high profile move could well aid his push for a more prominent role in Roy Hodgson’s set-up, all the more important given a World Cup is on the horizon.

Spaniard Cesar Azpilicueta did well in his first season at Stamford Bridge and Branislav Ivanovic was used predominantly in a centre-back role, but Mourinho may prefer a move to bring in the Tottenham man though would have something of a struggle to convince his former assistant boss Andre Villas-Boas to sell such a quality talent.

Tottenham signed Walker and defensive partner Kyle Naughton in a combined £9m deal back in 2009 but this source rates the player at £15m.
