Tottenham want to re-sign Kyle Walker-Peters in £20 million deal

Tottenham will not trigger the buyback clause to re-sign Kyle Walker and will instead offer around £20 million to secure his services.

According to a report by Graeme Bailey on HITC, Kyle Walker-Peters is the subject of interest from Tottenham. The North London giants have a buyback clause to re-sign the Englishman from Southampton for £30 million. However, they only want to cough up £20 million to secure the services of the Southampton full-back.

How has Kyle Walker-Peters fared at Southampton?

Kyle Walker-Peters has been a solid performer for Southampton since arriving from Tottenham Hotspur in 2020. The Saints initially signed the English full-back on a short-term loan deal in January 2020 until the end of the 2019/20 season before completing a permanent move in July 2020.

Walker-Peters has been an asset for Southampton due to his versatility, as he can reprise both full-back roles. The 27-year-old has turned out 165 times thus far for the Saints, chipping in with six goals and nine assists. However, the player’s long-term future at St. Mary’s Stadium is uncertain as he will enter the final year of his contract in July.

Such a situation has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several high-profile clubs in his country. The Englishman is the subject of interest from his former club, in particular. Tottenham can re-sign him for £30 million due to a buyback clause in his contract. However, they want to cough up a lower sum to secure his services.

Tottenham interested in re-signing Walker-Peters

Tottenham’s interest in Kyle Walker-Peters is understandable. Emerson Royal faces an uncertain future at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium heading into the summer transfer window, with the North London club ready to cash in on him amid his links with AC Milan.

So, it behoves Tottenham to invest in a top-notch right-back who can compete with Pedro Porro for the first-choice right-back berth. The English full-back can also be an option for the left-back berth if the Premier League heavyweights are in a situation similar to the last few weeks. However, Tottenham will look to re-sign Walker-Peters in a deal worth £20 million instead of paying £30 million.

Southampton will unlikely have much bargaining power, considering Walker-Peters will be in the final year of his contract when the summer transfer window opens. So, it will be interesting to see if Tottenham can successfully re-sign the 27-year-old Englishman for £20 million instead of £30 million.
