Tottenham Hotspur may have received a boost in their attempts to land rumoured midfield target Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg this summer, with Southampton now said to be keen on moving quickly to complete a permanent deal for Kyle Walker-Peters.

Spurs and Everton have both reportedly begun negotiations with Southampton over signing Hojbjerg this summer, with the Lilywhites hoping to bring his price down by including Walker-Peters in the deal (Sky Sports).

The Sun claim that the Saints are determined to move early to land the right-back, who is on loan at the St Mary’s until the end of the season.

It is claimed that Ralph Hasenhuttl now regards the 23-year-old as his first-choice right-back and is keen to bring him to the club on a permanent basis.

There is no option for Southampton to make the loan deal permanent but it is claimed that Tottenham ready to sell their academy graduate for £10million this summer, as they look to raise funds for potential signings.

Walker-Peter’s recent displays for Southampton have reportedly caught the eye of other top-flight clubs and the Saints are reportedly trying to wrap up the deal quickly.

Spurs Web Opinion

The decision to loan Walker-Peters to Southampton has proven to be an inspired one by Spurs. Given how well the right-back has done at St Mary’s, he could turn out to be a major bargaining chip for us to land Hojbjerg over other interested clubs.

With respect to Walker-Peters, it is evident that Tottenham made a mistake by not loaning him out a year or two earlier as regular Premier League football would have really aided the right-back’s development. It does not look as if he has a future at Tottenham as things stand.
