Tottenham fans on Twitter see little future for Walker-Peters at the club

Kyle Walker-Peters is something of an enigma at Tottenham. The young full-back is contracted at the club right up until 2023, but he doesn’t seem to have his manager’s faith. The 22-year-old has only made six appearances in the Premier League this season, laying on three assists, but has often been overlooked by Mauricio Pochettino.

Should Walker-Peters stay at the club, which is highly likely given his love for the North London side having grown up as a fan and come through the youth academy, then he will have to be patient. Both Serge Aurier and Kieran Trippier have struggled with form and injuries, yet the young right-back hasn’t featured as much as he’d have liked to, with Juan Foyth playing as a makeshift right-wingback at times.

Walker-Peters comes across as a lightweight young defender and he truly looks like he’s yet to come of age as a player. Physically he’s a number of years behind and unless he can be a late bloomer and find his physical side and gain a yard of pace in the next few years then most of the Lilywhites are going to struggle to see a way that he survives at his boyhood club, especially with summer spending imminent.

The Lilywhites are quickly losing faith in Walker-Peters and few tears would be shed if he was to leave this summer.
