West Ham United are interested in signing from Kyle Walker-Peters from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window, but are facing competition from Southampton, according to The Mirror (print edition, page 64, August 2, 2020). It has been reported that the Saints want to sign Walker-Peters on a permanent contract this week and are worried that the Hammers could hijack the deal.
The 23-year-old right-back spent the second half of this past season on loan at Southampton from Premier League rivals Spurs. The Englishman did well at St. Mary’s Stadium, as he made seven starts and three substitute appearances in the league, according to WhoScored.
West Ham manager David Moyes is a big fan of Walker-Peters and will try to do a deal with London rivals Spurs if club co-chairmen David Gold and David Sullivan give him transfer funds. The 23-year-old is valued at £12 million by Spurs and does not appear to have a future at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
