Kyle Walker wants the club to keep Gareth Bale and Luka Modric

Tottenham full back Kyle Walker has called on the club to remain strong in the summer months in order to keep star players Gareth Bale and Luka Modric.

After Chelsea’s Champions League victory confined the north Londoners to the Europa League, rumours began circulating that the pair could leave White Hart Lane to play in Europe’s elite club competition.

And the 21-year-old knows how important it is for Spurs to hold onto the duo.

“I think it’s vital (we keep them),” Walker said.

“The chairman showed last season that we are not a selling club.

“We can challenge next year for the title, definitely. We will be up there.

“We can achieve anything with the squad we have got. When I look around the changing room there’s Gareth, Aaron Lennon, Rafa van der Vaart, Emmanuel Adebayor and even the likes of Louis Saha, Brad Friedel.

“There are world-class players there, experienced heads and they have helped me a lot this season.

“It’s only upwards for Tottenham.”

The defender admitted he had mixed emotions as he watched the Champions League final last Saturday.

“Obviously Saturday is football. That’s what happens in the game,” he said.

“I had mixed emotions as I know Ryan Bertrand, he was making his debut and Chelsea are an English team, but I want to test myself at the highest level so I favoured Bayern a little.

“It didn’t work out as we would have liked but we just have to pick ourselves up now, dust ourselves down and challenge next year.”
