Tottenham Hotspur amongst three clubs interested in Kyle Walker-Peters

According to talkSPORT’s Alex Crook (h/t Football. London), Tottenham Hotspur are one of the three clubs interested in signing talented right-back Kyle Walker-Peters from Southampton.

Premier League rivals Manchester United and Chelsea are also interested in signing the player from the Saints and are set to rival Spurs. It will not be easy but there is the possibility that we hold an advantage.

A former Spurs academy product, Walker-Peters left the club in 2020 initially on loan and then on a permanent transfer to Southampton after not really getting a chance to prove himself here under Jose Mourinho.

With Southampton dangerously close to getting relegated this season, there is a chance that they will have to sell their players. Walker-Peters is too talented to be playing in the Championship if that happens.

Chelsea are on the lookout for a backup to Reece James and have apparently lined up the 25-year-old as the player for that role. Man United and Erik ten Hag are also looking to sign someone to compete with Diogo Dalot although that might die down with the recent form of Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

At this point, it does look like Antonio Conte & co want Pedro Porro as their priority but Sporting CP are not making life easy for them as they are demanding for the entire release clause to be paid.

In the eventuality that Tottenham don’t land the Spaniard, where they again face competition from Chelsea, they could turn their attention to Walker-Peters and a case can be made that he will be the better option rather than Porro.

As talented as Porro is, there are question marks if he can adapt to the rigours of the Premier League and if he has the required physicality to succeed in an Antonio Conte team. Signing Walker-Peters would mean signing a player who is PL-ready.

Tottenham will be hoping that the history they have with the player will help them convince him to come to N17 ahead of SW6 or M16. Let’s see how it goes.
