Could offloading Kyle Walker-Peters help Spurs' Nathan Ferguson chase?

The Sun recently reported that Tottenham Hotspur are one of the sides interested in signing Nathan Ferguson after his brilliant start to life in the West Bromwich Albion first-team.

The report claimed that Spurs’ scouts were raving about the defender. And it was suggested that he had become Mauricio Pochettino’s first-choice target ahead of the January transfer window.

The Sun added however, that Crystal Palace are also interested in Ferguson. The Eagles are looking for Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s long-term replacement following his £50 million move to Manchester United (fee reported by Sky Sports).

Spurs, on paper, should have the advantage. However, Ferguson would be forgiven for being concerned about the amount of competition at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. And that may leave Palace feeling that there is an opportunity.

But perhaps, another recent report hints that Spurs can boost their hopes of landing Ferguson.

The Sun also reported earlier this month that Kyle Walker-Peters could be loaned out in January. And Palace are one of the teams reportedly interested in him.

Not only would sending Walker-Peters to Selhurst Park alleviate some of the concerns Ferguson may have about competition, but it may also take Palace out of the running for the West Brom star.

Ferguson is versatile and can play at left-back. But if he does join Tottenham, questions could still be asked about Walker-Peters’s future. And letting him go permanently should perhaps not be ruled out as a possibility.

And if Pochettino decides that Ferguson could be the long-term answer to Tottenham’s right-back woes, then perhaps he should have little problem with Walker-Peters leaving for Palace.

It may be a transfer that improves their chances of landing a player that Spurs’ scouts are reportedly raving about ahead of the January window.
