Report: Tottenham keen with Walker-Peters eyeing Southampton exit
Tottenham Hotspur are one of the Premier League sides interested in signing Kyle Walker-Peters, with the right-back ready to leave Southampton in the January transfer window, according to a report from talkSPORT.
It has been a miserable season for the Saints, with Nathan Jones’ men currently sat bottom of the Premier League. They have a number of exciting young players in their ranks. But it appears that too many are a long way off realising their potential.
One of the few men at their peak is Walker-Peters. However, it seems that he may be looking to move before too long.
Tottenham keeping tabs on Walker-Peters
According to talkSPORT, he is stalling on signing a new contract. And he is pushing to leave the south coast. Manchester United and Chelsea both want the 25-year-old.
Meanwhile, talkSPORT adds that Tottenham are also keen on a deal which would see the defender return to North London nearly three years after he left permanently.
Antonio Conte’s side have had issues at right wing-back this season. None of Spurs’ three options have thrived in the role – though Tottenham fans are still awaiting the chance to see what Djed Spence can really do.
Walker-Peters has been superb for the Saints. But Tottenham fans may be a little split on whether they want the England international.
He is certainly talented. Dele Alli suggested that he was a ‘fantastic’ player during his time at Tottenham. However, some may wonder if he is enough of an upgrade on what they already have.
So it would be a surprise if he ended up returning to Tottenham in one of the coming windows.
