Walker-Peters enrolled in the Spurs academy in 2013 and advanced through the league’s age groups before making his debut for the team in the 2017–18 campaign under Mauricio Pochettino.
With the arrival of Jose Mourinho in 2020, the young player left his childhood club, Tottenham, as he was never able to secure regular playing time for the senior squad.
The 26-year-old has only gotten better since joining Southampton, and he has already earned two caps for the senior England team.
Kyle Walker-Peters could be returning to London with Chelsea.
Despite Southampton’s relegation from the Premier League the previous season, it surprised many when the full-back decided to stay at St Mary’s. However, it now appears that he may return to the capital city and the Premier League shortly.
According to TEAMtalk, Pochettino is looking for defensive reinforcements and a reunion with Walker-Peters at Stamford Bridge. The Argentine coach is reportedly drawn to the former Spurs star’s versatility as a left- or right-back.
According to the report, the Saints star and his representatives have discussed a January move to West London with the Blues hierarchy.
Although Southampton is hesitant to allow Walker-Peters depart in the middle of the season, the source notes that Chelsea would only need to make an offer of about £30 million to get him away from the South Coast.
