As per a report by Italian source Calciomercato, a big update has emerged on Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks and his future in north London.
The Lowdown: Winks impresses behind the scenes…
According a claim by The Sun last month, the England international actually got off to a pretty fine start to life under new head coach Nuno Espirito Santo.
Indeed, as per their information, Winks impressed the Portuguese tactician behind closed doors and it looked certain at one point that he would be staying at Tottenham.
However, as this news emerges from Italy, it appears there has been a twist in the tale.
The Latest: Winks actively looking, Italian clubs interested…
According to Calciomercato, the 25-year-old is now ‘out and looking’ for a new team in January after falling down the pecking order under Nuno in recent weeks.
Winks cut a bit-part figure under former boss Jose Mourinho too, starting just nine Premier League matches over 2020/2021, and it appears he could be going the same way this season – having played just over one hour of top flight football (WhoScored).
As the midfielder seeks pastures new, it is believed that Serie A giants Inter Milan and AS Roma are battling it out on the January market for him.
The Verdict: Time to go…
It is clear that Winks’ time is well and truly up at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
After being deemed surplus by two different managers in two seasons, chairman Daniel Levy needs to make some profit off the homegrown academy ace as soon as possible.
His age and the fact he is indeed homegrown could raise his market value just enough for Spurs to command a reasonable fee for him.
Winks is also a composed dictator of the ball in midfield, as evident by the fact he has averaged a head-turning 90% pass accuracy across all competitions since making his senior debut for Spurs in 2014/2015.
