Manchester United have made discreet enquirers about Kyle Walker's situation at Premier League rivals Tottenham, according to the Mirror.
The report has suggested that the Red Devils, who appear to be on the lookout for a new right-back under the Louis van Gaal regime, have identified the England international as a potential signing in the summer transfer window.
Walker, who currently earns £50,000-a-week at White Hart Lane, has been in impressive form of late, and will no doubt be hoping for an England recall sooner rather than later.
It remains to be seen, however, as to whether he'd be interested in a move to Manchester United, but the same report from the Mirror has suggested that he is on the lookout for Champions League football.
And as it stands the Red Devils are placed in a better position to land a spot in next year's elite European competition, however the north London outfit still have a chance of claiming a place in the top four this term.

It appears, then, that United could swoop for Walker, but Van Gaal still appears to be looking into a deal to bring Southampton full-back Nathaniel Clyne to the club, according to the same report.
Clyne, who has impressed all season long at the Saints, could yet be reunited with former teammate Luke Shaw at Old Trafford if United step up their interest in him.
As well as the English duo, Barcelona veteran Dani Alves is another name reportedly on the club's shortlist, with the player set to run out of contract at the Nou Camp at the end of the season.
Well, with Rafael da Silva failing to maintain his fitness throughout the course of the campaign, it's certainly not surprising that United are looking to bring another right-back to the club.
In truth, despite his age, Alves may actually be the best signing for United. Walker and Clyne are both unproven at the highest level, while Alves would provide great experience to United's struggling back-line.
The Barcelona ace may well even help his fellow Brazilian Rafael mature into a great right-back, so United should attempt to bring him to the club on a free transfer.
