Football London have claimed that Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker-Peters is set to sit down with Mauricio Pochettino to discuss his future with the north London club.
The 22-year-old managed just 10 appearances in all competitions for Spurs last season, and was guilty of a big mistake against Barcelona in the Champions League. He has a contract until the summer of 2023.
But the versatile defender is quickly evolving from a young player with a potential towards his mid-twenties, but despite all of that potential, he has managed just 19 appearances throughout his entire career for Spurs.
Behind Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier at right-back, and Ben Davies and Danny Rose at left-back, Walker-Peters has little chance of breaking into Pochettino’s starting line-up.
Aurier and Trippier have been linked with moves and the duo’s future could depend on what happens to Walker-Peters, but the report states that he is to sit down with Pochettino.
Walker-Peters certainly has decent potential and the chance of making it as an established defender in the Premier League. But it is clear to see, a move is needed for the defender.
The full-back needs to go on loan to an English Championship or a bottom-half Premier League side to get regular first-team football, and boost his chances of breaking into Pochettino’s side.
Staying at Spurs is only going to see him remain on the fringes.
