West Brom among clubs rivalling Southampton in pursuit of Tottenham Hotspur player



West Bromwich Albion are among a host of clubs interested in signing Tottenham Hotspur full-back Kyle Walker-Peters, according to the Daily Mail.

The 22-year-old made a total of 10 appearances for Spurs under Mauricio Pochettino last season, including an impressive display against FC Barcelona in the Champions League.

But under Jose Mourinho, Walker-Peters has struggled for regular game time, making only one appearance under the Portuguese boss which came against Bayern Munich last month.

Now, the chase is reportedly on for the young full-back, who will be wanting to be play more regularly as he nears the age of 23.

The Daily Mail claims that Crystal Palace, Brighton and Hove Albion and West Brom are interested in the player, though Southampton are reportedly leading the transfer race after holding extended talks with the North London club.

Spurs value Walker-Peters at a price of around £12m, and they would be looking to move the player on permanently this month rather than send him out on loan.

What was the outcome of West Brom's away trip to Nottingham Forest on the opening day?

West Brom’s current first-choice right-back, Nathan Ferguson, faces an uncertain future at The Hawthorns – the 19-year-old is yet to extend his deal at the club, which expires in the summer.

Palace are said to be after the talented right-back, with only days to go until the transfer window slams shut.

The Verdict

If Ferguson is to leave West Brom, which you have to say looks considerably likely at the moment, then Walker-Peters would be a young, talented and ambitious replacement for the former.

It feels that he should be much younger and it is somewhat surprising to know that he is 22 years of age, and he has already gained a lot of experience playing against some of the best players in the world.

He has never really looked out of place, either, whether he is playing in the Premier League or in the Champions League, so if West Brom go up this season, then he could provide perfect competition for Darnell Furlong.

It would be a real coup to sign him, given that established Premier League teams are also in the race for him.
