Manchester City and England right-back Kyle Walker has been tipped for a return to Tottenham as part of the deal that sees Harry Kane head in the opposite direction. City have made a £100million bid for Kane after the England captain told Spurs he wants to leave this summer.
City are prepared to include their own players in the deal in order to secure Kane’s signature.
Gabriel Jesus, Aymeric Laporte and Raheem Sterling have all been mentioned as potential makeweights.
However, former Scotland midfielder Don Hutchison cannot see the likes of Sterling moving to Spurs.
Hutchison instead can see Walker going back to the club he spent eight years at between 2009 and 2017.

“I don’t think [Sterling] goes there,” Hutchison said on ESPN FC.
“I think the fee that Spurs want is £120m, so now you’ve got to try and figure out which players will end up at Tottenham.
“Maybe Kyle Walker, he still lives in the area, with Joao Cancelo then playing at right-back.”
Hutchison says City will have no problem raising the money they need to sign Kane.

“I’ve read reports of Bernardo Silva maybe going to Atletico Madrid for £50m,” he added.
“So there’s enough money you would have thought in that City squad – with people like Nathan Ake and Laporte etc – there’s enough money there I think if you’re Man City, you could easily raise without even trying about £75m.
“Then you’ve got to play, what, close to £50m for Harry Kane? It’s a no-brainer.”
Meanwhile, Kane is yet to score in his three appearances at Euro 2020.
His former Spurs manager Jose Mourinho believes that is more a fault of the team rather than Kane as an individual.
“A striker depends on his team and depends on the dynamics,” Mourinho told talkSPORT.
“The best thing for a player is when he’s lucky enough to play in the national team with very, very similar routines and dynamics that the player has in the club.
“For example, if for a defender in the club he plays three in the back, the best thing is to go to the national team and be exactly in the same dynamics. In attacking areas I believe it’s the same.
“In this case the way is trying to play, there is no transfer of dynamics from club to national team. The way Harry is playing is not similar to what he does at Tottenham.”
