Report: Mourinho makes decision on Tottenham 22-year-old, January move on cards

Tottenham Hotspur’s manager Jose Mourinho is open to listen to offers for young right-back Kyle Walker-Peters in the January transfer window, as per the Guardian.

The 22-year-old has not been able to cement his spot in the starting XI ever since the arrival of the Portuguese trainer at Spurs in November and has only managed to represent the North London-based club in a single match

This was in Tottenham’s Champions League dead-rubber against Bayern Munich, where Mourinho largely rotated his side.

As per the latest report, the Spurs manager feels Walker-Peters could benefit from first-team football elsewhere and is not an essential player for the Lilywhites.

His potential departure will intensify Tottenham’s hunt for a full-back, where they are clearly struggling in the ongoing campaign, especially since the departure of Kieran Trippier in the summer transfer window to Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid.

As per Sky Sports, three Premier League sides—Brighton, Crystal Palace and Southampton—are interested in acquiring the services of the England U21 international.

The young right-back is a Spurs’ academy product and was promoted to the senior team in 2017 after the departure of Kyle Walker to Manchester City.

Since then, Walker-Peters has represented the Spurs’ senior-team in 48 matches in all competitions, managing to score two goals along with providing three assists.
