Fabrizio Romano has reported that talks are underway with Southampton regarding a move for Kyle Walker-Peters, as called first by ExWHUEmployee.

The full-back has reportedly said yes to a move to West Ham, but there is still plenty of work to be done between the two clubs before a deal is done. It will likely be a swap deal, with Flynn Downes going the other way.

Downes impressed on loan at the Saints last year, making 33 Championship appearances. Manager Russell Martin is desperate to secure the signing of the 25-year-old permanently, and he seems to be happy to sacrifice an important player in Walker-Peters to do so.

Both players are valued at around £15-20m, so it could mean a deal that is completed quickly. Lopetegui and Steidten are keen to get their business done early, and with pre-season starting soon, they will want to get the deal done for the 27-year-old as soon as possible.
