As reported by German newspaper Bild, the eternal Bundesliga champions are looking to strengthen their aging squad, with captain and right back Phillip Lahm retiring at the end of this season and wingers Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben edging ever closer to a combined age of - approximately - 107-years-old.

According to Bild, Bayern had their chief scout Michael Reschke at Wembley on Sunday to watch Walker in action, as Spurs lost 4-2 to Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final. But despite the result, Walker, 26, has had one if his strongest seasons at right back, a fact that hasn't gone unnoticed by the likes of Manchester United, City and, now, Bayern.

While Walker is a strong possibility, Sanchez is seen as a more clear-cut case, with the Arsenal winger agitating for a place in a team that's challenging in both domestic and European fronts.

As well as Champions League football, Bayern are likely to heavily increase both Walker and Sanchez's wages, with the former currently on about £70,000, while Sanchez is bringing in £130,000.

Speaking about the possibility of his biggest players leaving this summer, Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino was sanguine, saying: "If any player is going to leave the club it is always the club's decision. All the players today have contracts for the next two or three years, minimum, and we're not worried.

"I invite all the clubs that want players from Tottenham to come to the training ground and visit our chairman Daniel Levy."

Oh s**t...

Good luck with that one, Bayern.
