Ange Postecoglou announced in joy as star player who rejected Tottenham Hotspur three times finally joined Tottenham this morning…

Tottenham have secured the services of Archie Gray from Leeds United and many expect the youngster to serve as Pedro Porro’s understudy at right-back.

However, according to a report in The Athletic, Spurs primarily view the youngster as a midfielder, with the 18-year-old also wanting to play in the middle of the park.

If that is the case, it will be interesting to see if Ange Postecoglou’s men pursue another right-back this summer and one player who is thought to be on their radar is Walker-Peters.

Several reports over recent weeks have indicated that Spurs are interested in re-signing the 27-year-old, particularly given that he is homegrown and considered club-trained (GiveMeSport).

A few days ago, Fabrizio Romano, West Ham had begun discussions with Southampton over a deal for the England international, who was said to be willing to make a move to the London Stadium.

Sky Sports have now backed up that information, stating that the Hammers are currently locked in talks with the Saints over Walker-Peters.

The report claims that the South Coast club have now approached Bournemouth over a deal for Max Aarons, who they see as a potential replacement for the former Tottenham man.

However, the update adds that Spurs and Brighton are also keeping an eye on the Southampton right-back’s situation at the moment.

Even if Postecoglou and Tottenham see Gray as primarily a midfielder and expect him to evolve into a box-to-box player, the youngster will likely be used as Porro’s main understudy next season.
