Manchester United Eye Walker-Peters as Potential AWB Replacement

Walker-Peters could provide good competition for Dalot

Manchester United has recently been linked to Southampton defender Kyle Walker-Peters as a potential replacement for Aaron Wan-Bissaka. The 25-year-old right-back has impressed at Southampton this season and has caught the eye of United manager Erik ten Hag.

It is worth to mention that Manchester United‘s recent transfer policy has been to prioritized young players with high potential and Kyle Walker-Peters fits well in that profile. The player’s ability to play as a full-back on both sides of the field also makes him a more versatile option than Wan-Bissaka, as well as his ability to play as a wing-back which is a key feature of ten Hag’s preferred style of play.

However, Aaron Wan-Bissaka had been in good form recently, especially in the defensive side of the game. He has been solid defensively and has been working hard to improve his attacking contributions. While he’s only provided one assist in the Premier League this season, he has been performed consistently for the club since the season restarted after the World Cup. However, despite his good form, ten Hag is not convinced he’s the player to challenge Diogo Dalot for the position moving forward.

The remaining part of the season will be key for Manchester United, as the team is currently in fourth place in the Premier League and competing in three additional cup competitions. The club will need to maintain its form and depth if it wants to challenge for a top-four finish and potentially win a European trophy. Adding a player like Kyle Walker-Peters, who can provide cover and competition for Dalot, would be a smart move for the club.

In conclusion, it’s no secret that Manchester United is in need of depth at the right-back position and Kyle Walker-Peters is an exciting player who could provide that. His versatility and potential make him an ideal fit for ten Hag’s team

My name is Alex and I am a co-host of the American Red Devils podcast, and discovered the greatest football club in the world freshman year in highschool, after playing FIFA '99 on Nintendo 64. Originally it was the red hair of Paul Scholes that caught my attention, given the four Gingers in my family, but I never knew a redhead could ball like Scholesy. However, what really sucked me in was the arrival of Wayne Rooney at the club, to this day my all-time favorite player. I was lucky enough to witness my first game at Old Trafford in '07 while studying abroad, witnessing the 4-0 thrashing of Wigan. I rented a car and drove down for the day from Edinburgh to Manchester and back (NYC to Boston twice), driving on the wrong side of the car and the road! Lucky enough to be in Sunderland to see Zlatan's last United goal and in London to see Matic's stoppage time screamer at Selhurst. Honored and privileged to be a Manchester United fan.
