Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly set a £15million asking price for defender Kyle Walker-Peters (Football Insider).

The report claims that Jose Mourinho has given the green light for Walker-Peters to be sold this month.

The right-back has featured just once since Mourinho took over in November and has failed to push Serge Aurier for a regular place in the side.

It is suggested that Tottenham are not interested in loaning the 22-year-old out and will look to sell him permanently before the window closes.

Football Insider reported last week that Walker-Peters held talks with both Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson and Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl about a possible January move.

While the report claims that discussions between Spurs and both the aforementioned clubs are still ongoing, it is suggested that neither club has been willing to meet Spurs’ valuation of the former academy product.

Spurs Web Opinion

I was convinced that Walker-Peters would eventually break into the first-team up until six months ago but he has not looked good enough defensively in the opportunities he has been handed so far. I believe a move to a mid-table team like Southampton, who like to play on the front foot, will suit the youngster perfectly. I can see him establishing himself as a good Premier League full back but I don’t think he is good enough for a side with our aspirations.
