Glasgow Rangers have reportedly now ‘been offered’ the chance to bring Harry Winks to Ibrox this summer.
The Lowdown: New start
Having only managed 30 appearances in total for Tottenham Hotspur over all competitions last season, coupled up with the signing of central midfielder Yves Bissouma from Brighton and Hove Albion, Winks is in need of a fresh start.
He has been out of the England set-up since 2020 after making his senior debut back in 2017 (Transfermarkt), and so needs a move away if he is to have any chance of forcing himself into Gareth Southgate’s plans for the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
The Latest: Offered
Taking to Twitter, 90min editor and journalist Sean Walsh has revealed that Winks has now ‘been offered’ to Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team, although a number of clubs in the Premier League are thought to be ‘interested’ in his signature:
“Several Premier League sides are interested in Harry Winks, including Everton as reported elsewhere. He’s also been offered to Rangers.”
The Verdict: Loan
Very much like the Aaron Ramsey situation last term, bringing Winks in on loan would be the best scenario for the Teddy Bears.
Of course, being at a Premier League and UEFA Champions League club means that his wages will be high, as he earns £91,000-per-week at Spurs.
Should Rangers sign Winks?
This would obliterate the Light Blues’ wage structure, and so they would need to negotiate with the North London club over a suitable wage split.
Nonetheless, Winks, who has been dubbed a ‘fabulous‘ player by former Lilywhites goalkeeper Paul Robinson, is very experienced at the highest level, and so is sure to elevate the dressing room should he make the move to the Gers.
