Manchester United have been linked with a move for Southampton defender Kyle Walker-Peters by journalist Alex Crook.
Walker-Peters, valued at a career-high €25m by Transfermarkt, is primarily a right-back but has also played further forward on both sides this season. The 25-year-old has been with the Saints since 2020 after leaving Tottenham and has gone on to make 99 appearances for the club in all competitions.
Crook shared a transfer notebook for talkSPORT on Wednesday, where he made a claim on the future of Walker-Peters.
He said that the player is pushing for a St. Mary’s exit, with both United and Premier League rivals Chelsea circling over a possible move.
TIF Thoughts on Walker-Peters rumours…
Erik ten Hag has Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka as senior right-back options at this moment in time, so you’d expect that one of the two would need to move on if United were to sign Walker-Peters.
It will be interesting to see what happens with Wan-Bissaka, but it looks as if Walker-Peters, hailed a ‘top class’ player by sports journalist Josh Bunting, is on the list of potential targets, making this one to keep an eye on.
