90 min have revealed that Southampton have made it clear they have no intention of selling Kyle Walker-Peters this month amidst interest from Tottenham in re-signing the right-back.
Spurs are reportedly on the lookout for reinforcements at right wing-back this transfer window, with multiple outlets claiming over recent weeks that Sporting Lisbon’s Pedro Porro is the club’s top target (Guardian).
It was reported by talkSPORT last Wednesday that Antonio Conte’s men are also exploring the possibility of re-signing Walker-Peters, who swapped North London for the South Coast back in 2020.
The report asserted that the Tottenham academy graduate is stalling on signing a new deal at St Mary’s and is pushing for a move away from the club.
90 min have now backed up Spurs’ interest in bringing Walker-Peters back to the club and they add that the England international is also on the radars of both Chelsea and Manchester United.
However, the publication states that Southampton have insisted that they are against selling the 25-year-old in January as they are uncertain about when Tino Livramento will be able to return from a serious knee injury.
In fact, the report explains that Nathan Jones’ men are actually looking to add another right-back to the squad rather than selling one, owing to Livramento’s injury.

Walker-Peters is contracted until 2025 at the St Mary’s and so, Southampton were never going to be under any sort of pressure to sell the right-back during the current transfer window.
In fact, the South Coast club will probably demand a substantial fee for the former Spurs man in the summer as well, particularly since multiple clubs are likely to show interest in the 25-year-old.
