Southampton are interesting in fast tracking a deal to sign Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker-Peters for £10million this summer, according to The Sun.
The 23-year-old, who featured just five times for Spurs this since, has impressed since making the loan switch to Southampton in January – and has started each of their last four Premier League matches, including Monday’s 2-2 draw with Manchester United.
With the Saints offloading Cedric Soares to Arsenal in January, Walker-Peters has established himself as their first-choice right-back since the restart and manager Ralph Hassenhutl’s wants to sign the former England U21 on a permanent basis.
Jose Mourinho did admit recently that there’s “still a place” for the defender at Tottenham, but those comments came after the Portuguese played Walker-Peters just once before he left on loan in January – December’s 3-1 Champions League defeat against Bayern Munich.
And despite Spurs also reportedly looking to offload their other only recognised right-back in Serge Aurier, Walker-Peter also appears to be heading for the exit – with Southampton keen on making him one of their first summer signings.
