Manchester United and Chelsea are reportedly showing interest in Southampton’s Kyle Walker-Peters as both clubs look for a new right-back.
However, they could stay closer to home for a solution, as TalkSport says both clubs are also looking at Walker-Peters.
The 25-year-old has stalled negotiations over a new Saints contract, with his current deal running to June 2025.
The report says he wants to leave, and United could be an option if Aaron Wan-Bissaka finds a new club this month.
Walker-Peters’ former club Tottenham are also said to be monitoring the situation, although Porro is believed to be their top target.
The two-time England international, who is valued at £22 million by Transfermarkt, has made 17 appearances in all competitions for Saints this season, scoring one goal.
It’s been a difficult campaign for the south coast club, who sit bottom of the Premier League table, but they enjoyed a confidence-boosting shock win over Manchester City in the League Cup quarter-finals this week.
