Kyle Walker-Peters will surely benefit from Tottenham plans to clear out defenders

Tottenham academy graduate Kyle Walker-Peters is still feeling his way into the first team, with eight senior appearances across all competitions so far this season.

The 21-year-old defender is still on the fringes, with senior pair Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier ahead of him in the pecking order at full-back.

But the England Under-21 international could be about to strike gold, as there are reportedly exits planned at Spurs for the summer.

According to the Sun, Mauricio Pochettino’s side are prepared to offload both Trippier and Aurier from their squad at the end of the season.

The report details that Everton want to swoop for £20million-rated Trippier and that Spurs are “particularly keen” to bin off Aurier too.

 

It is understood that Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Norwich City’s Max Aarons are two full-backs Spurs are keen on as potential replacements.

With Trippier and Aurier tipped for the exit doors, that surely leaves it open for Walker-Peters next season.

Even if Spurs do add an extra right-back to their squad, he could move up to second-choice and really push hard to become a regular starter.

The North London club play a lot of games due to the amount of competitions they go far in and Walker-Peters may feel next season he can strike gold by really making a name for himself.

His highlight to date was supplying three assists in a Premier League win over Bournemouth and he’s definitely got the potential going forward, but just needs to sharpen up defensively as he matures.
