Chelsea are ready to join Real Madrid in a battle to sign Tottenham Hotspur’s exciting young full-back Kyle walker.

The 22-year-old’s reputation has been growing since he returned to White Hart Lane from a loan spell at fellow Premier League side Aston Villa, which led to Jose Mourinho being credited with an interest in him earlier this year.

Now a report from is claiming the Stamford Bridge club have made enquiries to their fellow Londoners about the possibility of signing Walker.

It even goes so far as to claim that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich made a bid for the defender but was knocked back.

Walker had an impressive year under Harry Redknapp last season, which culminated in him getting his first call-up to the senior England squad and helping Spurs finish fourth in the Premier League – Chelsea’s subsequent Champions League triumph meant Spurs missed out on Europe’s top competition.

Were Chelsea to sign Walker they would have an ample supply of right-backs, having purchased Cesar Azpilicueta from Marseille in the summer and Branislav Ivanovic seemingly first choice in the position.
