Harry Winks’ future lies away from Tottenham Hotspur after the 26-year-old failed to land a regular starting or rotation role when manager Antonio Conte took over the squad last November.
Over the last few weeks, Winks has seen his name connected to Everton and Crystal Palace, but it appears as though The Toffees are the club ready to push forward with their interest in the midfielder.
According to the Daily Mail, Everton has held further talks with Tottenham over Winks, but an agreement is not advanced. Frank Lampard’s squad would prefer a loan option for the former Spurs youth product.
This is a U-turn on what Conte told the press at the beginning of the year…
“Winksy is playing well,” Conte said ahead of the New Year’s Day visit to Watford. “Winks has showed to be a reliable player. And for this reason, Winksy will stay here. I find players that are reliable, and that I can count on them, and Winksy showed me that I can count on him.”
Lampard is on the hunt for a midfielder this summer after the departures of Fabian Delph, whose contract expired, and Donny van de Beek, who returned to Manchester United following his loan spell.
The Everton boss would reportedly green light a move for Winks, who is already falling down the pecking order in the midfield following the arrivals of Rodrigo Bentancur and Yves Bissouma.
Also, Pierre-Emile Højbjerg is already commanding a spot, so there’s tense competition for the starting roles. With Winks looking to kickstart his career again, he’d be suited to attempting to secure the move to Everton.
Never got over him and Alli laughing in the centre circle as we rolled over in Zagreb .never seen anything like it in a Spurs shirt.both of them thought they were bigger than the team ..and Loris called em out live after the game . The pair needed sacking ..then again the Kappelmeister was playing their tune.
Hope he goes cannot stand Winks because of the above
It seems Everton want to take him on loan for the season.With Bissouma’s arrival his chances of any game time with us would be very limited,so a oermanent transfer out is the best all round.He may them find a bit of form for somebody.His days with us are finished I hope.
IF he wants a career on the pitch he needs to move, otherwise he’ll be a typical modern day footballer, stay and just take the money.
“and then you went and spoiled it all by saying something stupid like I love Winks”.
If you recall Tonio you also said that is not enough for players to be keen to learn and to train really well sometimes they are just not good enough.
