Tottenham Transfer News: Chelsea and Manchester United linked with Walker-Peters

Tottenham are being linked with making a move to bring Kyle Walker-Peters back to the club, but face hefty competition to do so.

Reports this week have linked Walker-Peters with a return to Spurs from Southampton. TalkSPORT made the suggestion, claiming the right-back could be of interest for Tottenham as they continue to struggle to land Pedro Porro.

However, if Tottenham do want Walker-Peters back, then there’s some familiar faces standing in their way.

Chelsea’s interest comes as they struggle to get Reece James back fit. Meanwhile, United are thought to be looking due to doubts over the future of Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Lauded last year as ‘outstanding‘ by Paul Merson, Walker-Peters has built a reputation for himself at Southampton as one of the league’s most dependable right-backs. However, with Nathan Jones’ side struggling, the 25-year-old might fancy a move elsewhere.

Southampton paid around £12m to sign Walker-Peters from Southampton back in the summer of 2020. The full-back is approaching 100 appearances in the Premier League.

TBR’s View: Walker-Peters a smart choice for any buyer

While Southampton struggle, Kyle Walker-Peters continues to be a star performer who probably deserves a bit better than a relegation battle.

The Saints will want to keep their best players but with them struggling near the bottom, there has to be some doubts over their top stars.

‘KWP’ would be an astute signing for any of those clubs mentioned. Tottenham might be a smart move for the right-back, given he knows the club well. Certainly, he’s better than what’s currently available for Antonio Conte.

United and Chelsea are more difficult decisions. He’d likely be playing second fiddle there, meaning any move comes with the risk of not playing.
