According to a report from Football.London, Tottenham Hotspur could invoke a buy-back clause for Kyle Walker-Peters of Southampton. It is understood that during Mourinho’s tenure at the North London club Walker-Peters had been sold off to the Saints with a £30 million ‘buy-back’ clause included in the deal.

Walker-Peters’ Impressive Campaign For Southampton Last Season

Walker-Peters had a decent campaign with the Saints as he produced a few dominant displays for them on the defensive end of the pitch. The 25-year-old was involved in 32 matches last season, finding the back of the net once and providing two assists in the Premier League.

The English defender performed consistently based on his average of 1.8 tackles, 1.2 interceptions and 1.3 clearances per 90 minutes in Serie A. He was even accurate when distributing the ball from the back, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 81.3% in the English first division (stats via whoscored).

Should Conte Take Advantage Of The Clause To Bring Him back to Tottenham Hotspur?

Kyle Walker-Peters is a solid tackler of the ball and can make a few timely interceptions for his team inside his half. He usually clears the danger when needed and can make a few dangerous runs down the flanks. The English international can even produce a few meaningful chances in the final third by setting up his teammates in front of the goal.

The London-born talent is primarily a left-back but remains versatile enough to feature in the right-back position and play as a wide midfielder. He would be a brilliant addition to Antonio Conte’s squad.

The Spurs are adamant about recruiting two or more new faces before the end of this transfer window and Walker-Peters could definitely add more squad depth. The Lilywhites could make the most of his services if they use the buy-back clause in his contract, although they would still need to splash out £30 million which could make it difficult to balance the books when it comes to financial recovery.
