Former Arsenal striker Jay Bothroyd has said that he would love to see the Gunners snap up former Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker-Peters this summer.

Walker-Peters joined the Spurs academy aged just 14 back in 2013 and made his way through the age group ranks at the club before being handed his senior debut by Mauricio Pochettino.

The 25-year-old found opportunities hard to come by after the Argentine was replaced by Jose Mourinho and made the permanent switch to St Mary’s in the summer of 2020 following a six-month loan spell on the South Coast.

The right-back has gone from strength to strength since his move to the Saints and is quickly gaining a reputation as being one of the best players in his position across the Premier League.

Both talkSPORT and 90 min reported during the January transfer window that Tottenham explored the possibility of bringing Walker-Peters back to the club before they eventually decided to sign Pedro Porro.

It was subsequently claimed by journalist Dean Jones on GiveMeSport back in March that the England international was on Arsenal’s radar ahead of the summer transfer window.

Bothroyd has now taken to social media to name Walker-Peters as one of seven players he would like to see his beloved Gunners snap up this summer.

The 41-year-old suggested that an offer of around £20m-£30m might be enough to lure the former Tottenham man away from St Mary’s following Southampton’s relegation.

Spurs Web Opinion

While I would love to see Spurs go in for Walker-Peters this summer, right-back is not one of the areas that is a priority for the club to address for the club this summer.

In fact, in Pedro Porro and Djed Spence, we potentially have two young right-backs who could thrive under an attacking coach like Arne Slot.
