“Tottenham have been monitoring him” – Fabrizio Romano confirms Spurs’ interest in 27-year-old

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur are keeping tabs on their former player Kyle Walker-Peters as they look to strengthen their defence this summer.

Brighton and West Ham have expressed interest in the Southampton defender. West Ham are even considering a swap deal involving Flynn Downes, though the negotiations are proving to be complex.

However, according to Fabrizio Romano, Spurs have been monitoring their former player, who left the club for Southampton in 2020.

He shared the update on X:

The North London side sees him as a perfect fit to bolster their defence, especially at right-back, a position that needs reinforcement following the expected departure of Emerson Royal.

The 27-year-old is in the final year of his contract with Southampton, set to expire in June next year. With no extension on the horizon, his exit from the club seems imminent.

Walker-Peters had a standout campaign last season, contributing immensely as Southampton earned the promotion to the Premier League following their win against Leeds in the play-offs final.

He started 46 games in the Championship throughout the campaign and recorded 3 goals and 3 assists. 

A significant advantage of Walker-Peters is his versatility. Primarily a right-back, he has also performed well as a left-back, potentially offering flexibility for Ange Postecoglou. This adaptability makes him an excellent backup option for both Pedro Porro and Destiny Udogie.

Tottenham’s interest in Walker-Peters fits their strategy of enhancing their squad with versatile and experienced players.

As the transfer window continues, the Englishman’s potential return to North London would not only deepen the squad but also reintroduce a familiar and reliable player to the team.
