Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks has emerged as a potential transfer target for Everton.
The Telegraph has claimed the Spurs academy graduate is on Frank Lampard’s Toffees transfer wishlist.
Winks is expected to leave the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this summer.
The 26-year-old struggled to secure regular starts last season under Nuno Espirito Santo and then Antonio Conte.
Winks made 30 appearances for Tottenham in all competitions in 2021-22, but only 17 were starts.
Conte brought Rodrigo Bentancur to Spurs in January which led to Winks falling down the pecking order.
And according to football.london’s Alasdair Gold, Oliver Skipp has fully recovered from his long injury.
The Telegraph claimed Winks had been told he could leave Tottenham this summer.
Spurs are reportedly valuing the England international at £20m.
Meanwhile, Everton boss Lampard apparently wants at least four new signings at Goodison Park.
This is to try and ensure the Toffees can avoid another relegation battle in the Premier League.
However, with finances tight, Everton ‘would most likely only be interested in loaning the 26-year-old out for the season’.
With Winks seemingly surplus to Tottenham’s demands, it remains to be seen whether Spurs would agree to those terms.
Sevilla are apparently also eyeing the £91,000-a-week player.
“The profile of a perfect midfielder”
Winks made 203 appearances for Tottenham and made the 2019 Champions League final.
Mauricio Pochettino was a huge fan of the Spurs academy graduate.
In 2018, he confided to the Evening Standard: “Harry has the profile of the perfect midfielder.
“His characteristics are perfect. When we talk about midfielders like Xavi and Iniesta, he looks like that type of player.
“He has that ability but he has to take my words very positively – he needs a lot of work.”
However, Winks’ career at Spurs hasn’t really taken off and he remains a peripheral player.
Similarly, he hasn’t been able to add to his 10 England caps recently.
The last appearance of the Three Lions of Winks dates back to November 2020.
