ARSENAL and Manchester United are reportedly interested in a transfer for Kyle Walker-Peters.
Tottenham could scupper their plans however, as they are thought to have a £30million buy-back clause in his contract.
Walker-Peters, 25, joined Southampton from Spurs for £12million in 2020.
And now The Athletic report that the Saints are considering a cash in for the right-back.
The Gunners and Red Devils both have the Englishman on their "list of possible targets".
Walker-Peters is contracted to the St Mary's Stadium side until 2025.

But there is "no progress" on a fresh deal for the youngster and Southampton could examine a move.
The team hierarchy are not "actively seeking" to sell him but could weigh up options depending on other business this summer.
The South coast club may want a new full-back to compete with Walker-Peters in cover for Tino Livramento, who faces a long-term absence after a horrific knee injury.
Walker-Peters has since established himself as a key player under Ralph Hassenhuttl.

Wright he stated he should have been given more chances, which he may indeed get if the North London club initiate their buy-back option.
He said: "Kyle Walker-Peters. Its great to see him.
"When I watched Serge Aurier for a couple of games I'm thinking, I'm sorry, Kyle Walker-Peters is a better player.
"They brought Emerson Royal in and I'm saying I'm sorry, he's a better player.
"And even with Doherty, who does great stuff going forward, I've watched Walker-Peters and I'm glad he's got the call-up [for England].
